Black and Orange

Here are some recent sgraffito tiles. I try and I try but I never get photos of sgraffito tiles that do them justice. But I think you can get the idea of what they look like.

For info on the technique, look here. You’ll get the whole story on how to do this kind of work.

      Thank you. I love doing them, the process is very intuitive and free. And then I think the result is unlike anything else I do, very mysterious and dark.

    I may have said this before but if I did then that just means that I really mean it. These really remind my of ancient Egyptian claywork. Not only the color but the imagery. Very nice. XO

      Thank you. I really like doing these, they are very free and expressive with little planning (and sometimes the oops, the tool slipped, kind of inspiration that sends you in a new directions…).

      Thank you. I always liked ancient Greek pottery Black and orange, I mean, and this kind of reminds me of it. I will keep working on this technique, I think it has a lot to offer.

      Thank you, I love doing them, and I love the results. I studied the Estruscans, Cretans, and so in college about one million years ago and I think the images have never left me. I especially love the color combination in these tiles, so dramatic.
