And while I was firing a cone six glaze kiln, I not only glazed the sgraffito platters, but I also glazed some more sgraffito bowls too! They used to be white with a black band…now the colored glazes make them more fun & colorful while still allowing the carving detail to show through!

Just a quick reminder of what these porcelain sgraffito bowls looked like BEFORE glazing. White porcelain with a band of black slip. Then I carved the patterns around the rim using my favorite DiamondCore Tools. Crisp, clean lines to reveal the white porcelain patterns through the black slip.

And a third sgraffito platter fresh from the kiln! Since getting my DiamondCore Tools, I’ve started doing some carving of patterns through black slip. Not that I’m going to stop stamping any time soon… but I’m kind of enamored by these new sgraffito platters. Pretty good chance there will be more coming soon!!!

Another sgraffito platter that came out of the kiln today. Black slip on white porcelain – carved through with my DiamondCore Tools to make crisp lines & designs! And then sprayed with a green cone six glaze!

Also in the kiln… a couple sgraffito platters!!! They’ve been sitting bisqued in my studio for awhile and I finally got around to glazing them. And I’m LOVING them! Gotta love a good spiral!!!
