Sgraffito Slab Tile with Laura Ruprecht
The word sgraffito basically means to scratch and create a graphic or an image. In ceramics, sgraffito is a technique of ornamentation in which a surface layer is carved to reveal a ground of contrasting color. Students will learn how to create a hanging tile by using slabs of a white clay body. Once the clay has dried to a leather-hard stage, we will paint a few layers of black underglaze to the surface of the clay and carve pictures to create a contrasting image.
Instructor Laura Ruprecht is The Arts Center’s current artist in residence. Some of her sgraffito artworks are currently on exhibit in The Arts Center gallery.
