One of a kind Folk Art Pottery handmade in a 1750s stone house. This design was inspired by Pennsylvania German Redware. Black Sgraffito.
Each piece 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, with a scratch tool, revealing the red clay beneath – the sgraffito technique. When the piece is totally dry it is fired in an electric kiln – first bisque fired, and then food-safe glaze is applied and fired again.
