Based out of a studio in Connecticut, Kerri-Michaud Bagley creates original ceramic works inspired by her love for nature.
“My vessels are thrown on the potter's wheel and carved using the traditional sgraffito technique, which can be dated back to the Middle Ages throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa. I love using this technique because it connects to the history of ceramics and allows me to combine my drawing skills with pottery. Colored underglazes create the background color on the clay surface in which the designs are individually hand carved into the surface of the clay. The pottery will then dry out before it goes through the bisque firing in an electric kiln. A clear glaze is then applied on top and fired for a second time.”
