About this item
"I definitely love to make stuff. Currently I am interested in patterns of color on functional ware. I paint three layers of different colored slip on soft slabs, sgraffito through the layers and use a rolling pin to flatten the surface and spread the colors. Sometimes I carve out bits, turn them upside-down and inlay them. These painterly slabs are used to make plates, bowls, cups, vases and teapots."
Dimensions: 1.25" h x 9" w x 9" l
