Wedding Bowls

‘ve been making wedding bowls for special people this spring.  The technique used is called scraffito.  I threw the piece in a lighter clay and then

brushed the surface with a thin coating of black tinted clay slip.  After it dries halfway I carve in the image, and it gets a clear glaze.  The saying on the bowl on the right is a Basho poem that I thought was good wedding advice.
