Sgraffito ware. This original design is inspired by antique Pennsylvania German pottery from the 1700s through the 1800s and is handmade in a 1750's stone house.
Each plate begins with red earthenware clay rolled flat with a rolling pin and cut to fit the mold. Then the clay is laid into the mold (slump molded) to shape it. When it is just dry enough to handle without losing its shape liquid white clay (slip) is applied to the surface with a brush. The design is scratched into the slip revealing the red clay beneath – the sgraffito technique.
