Scratching Dogs

After seeing the beautiful sgraffito carving on the Navajo Pottery this summer, I’ve been wanting to try the technique. The tiles are alpine white clay painted with black underglaze. I scratched off the underglaze to get these images. The “models” are dogs recently or currently available for adoption at the Seattle Humane Society where we adopted our dog Sam (bottom left).
