Mishima/Sgraffito Bowl - Student Work

My 2nd level Ceramics students recently finished glazing their gorgeous mishima/sgraffito bowls. This beauty belongs to senior Steven Ebalobor. Mishima is an inlay technique and sgraffito is an overlay technique. Both are done with a porcelain slip that the kids mix colored oxides of their choice into. I'm pretty sure Steven used black oxide in his mixture with a transparent glaze over top. The slip is applied when the clay is still very wet, we call that plastic clay. The feet on this bowl are skateboards. Very clever Steven :)
