Tumbler Butcher Bird
Tumbler wheelthrown, trimmed, freehand carved.
These cups are decorated with a technique known as sgrafitto. Raw clay is coated with underglaze or clay slip and a design is carved to reveal the clay beneath. It is time consuming but oh so joyous!
These designs reflect the abundant birdlife where I live.
Clear glaze over carving on the outside and white glaze on the inside. Base sanded smooth.
8cm wide at rim
