Beautiful piece. Can you tell me more about the piece? What clay is it made from?

Beautiful piece - so delicate looking and I love the color!

Hi Tracy, I use white, low fire clay. Sometimes also use terra cotta (red) but not as much. The clay fires to 1945 degress for bisque and 1828 for glaze. I prefer low fire clay because the lower temperature enables me to get much brighter colors in the glaze.
This piece is done with my sgrafitto technique, which is my signature technique. I use underglazes in layers, then scratch in the design with a sharp tool when the underglaze is still damp. After the underglaze dries I use a clear glaze on top to seal the design and the clay.

How did I ever miss your shop? Beautiful pieces! I'm adding you to my favorites and getting myself a thing or two. This is a very fun event,

Thanks Rosanne, I'm glad you discovered me. I have to wear so many hats, and work full time at a "real" job, I don't spend enough time marketing myself. I'd rather be glazing..LOL
