i first started by rolling out the clay and putting it on top of a bowl and letting it dry for a little bit to get the shape. After that I smoothed it out with my hands and fixed any parts that I wanted to. After that I let it dry for a little and painted the sgrafitto glaze over it and carved out my design. I fired it after that and I was done.
i wanted to do this because i wanted to do something that I would use. I would make the design more clean and the white parts more white instead of grey. I would sign up for sculpture.
