A batik vase, my first sgraffito endeavor.

Out of stock



My first experiment with sgraffito! This hemispherical small vase was covered with slip, which then was “scratched” with tool, following a batik pattern called “Megamendung”, or the clouds. The batik pattern originated from a town called Cirebon. It’s also my mom’s favorite pattern.

The piece was wheel-thrown, trimmed and scratched, bisque-fired, then dipped into studio clear glaze, before being glaze fired.

Approximate dimensions: 3.25″ dia x 2″ height
