Sgraffito Pottery Project


 Elizabeth Donnelly-Nelson is conducting a Sgraffito Pottery Project this April. 

What is sgraffito?

“Sgraffito, (Italian: “scratched”), in the visual arts, a technique used in painting, pottery, and glass, which consists of putting down a preliminary surface, covering it with another, and then scratching the superficial layer in such a way that the pattern or shape that emerges is of the lower colour.” Wikipedia.
