Sgraffito ware handmade in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania using traditional tools and methods. This is an original design inspired by antique Pennsylvania German Redware pottery.
Drape molded (laid over the mold) red earthenware clay with white slip (liquid clay) painted over the surface. The design was created using the sgraffito method of scratching through the white slip to reveal the red clay beneath. The yellow and green glazes are traditional and food safe. The back is unglazed following the traditions of the early Pennsylvania German potters.
I sign, date and inscribe the day's weather on the back - September 21, 2019, "warm and sunny".
10 1/4" diameter, 1 1/4" deep.
