Sgraffito in Italian means to “scratch”. It is a surface decorating technique produced by applying layers of color or colors to leather hard pottery and then scratching or carving away areas to create shapes, images, patterns and texture, revealing the clay color underneath. The 3-D lizard was made and applied to the surface. Velvet underglazes were used for the colors. After bisque firing a clear glaze was sprayed on the surface, and fired again. There is a hole on the back to allow for easy hanging of the piece. Sometimes with a cup of tea late at night, music playing in the background, I find I can carve for hours. The possibilities are limitless.
