Our pottery studio is named Clay With Me for a reason...

My wife and I make functional porcelain pots with carved sgraffito patterns. Our work begins with Anna throwing each piece on the pottery wheel, trimming and adding handles, knobs, etc. Then, after the piece has dried to leather hard, the clay makes a transition: she lets go and I take over. I coat the piece with engobe (colored clay slip), and once this dries I begin my own magic. With a selection of sgraffito tools, I listen to what each pot requires and carve intricate patterns through the layer of engobe. The patterns I create sometimes bring to mind woven basketry, textures found in nature or even alien landscapes. Anna and I both find a certain peace working together in this way. By embracing that moment of "letting go" and "accepting whatever comes", we are exploring a new path of creative possibilities.
