Porcelain Bowl with Black Slip and Sgraffito
This unique bowl was created on a potter's wheel and altered by hand to achieve it's shape. When "leatherhard," several thin layers of black slip (colored liquid clay) was applied with a brush. When the slip was dry, I drew the floral patterns into the black slip so the white porcelain underneath would display the floral pattern. This process is called "sgraffito," a technique that origininated in the 16thC during the Italian Renaissance.
