Check out this gorgeous piece from Noortje Meijerink. On her site, Noortje describes her technique for creating the ceramic porcelain pots and vases, and covering them in a homemade black slip. Using a sgrafitto technique, she scratches geometric patterns inspired by Pueblo Indian art into the surface, revealing the white pattern on the black field. Silver metal clay is used to further embellish some of these amazing pieces.
