Home Truths: Finalizing Ideas

With the many technique we were shown its really opened my eyes to have versatile ceramics can be, and with my theme of native American i am now looking in to which method would best communicate the injustices they have suffered. one of my favorite test pieces was the slip and sgraffito piece.

As i think the act of scratching something in really reinforces the message of that the past wont be ignored anymore and shows in a way the scars of their suffering. Its the technique that feels right for what i want to communicate, it also create some texture which may be impurities but i think that’s what speaks.

For my finished plates i also wanted to use decals over the top of my sgraffito showing a more commercial side of native Americans with images that most are more familiar with, to create a contrast with in each plate.
