6 × 10.5 cm
Please be aware that the surface of this vessel is matt and will pick up any grease marks or dirt from your hand. This form will not hold water as it has not been glazed inside.
Every unique design created starts life as a detailed line drawing and once I’m happy this is transferred on paper by hand onto the clay surface. Each piece has been thrown on the wheel, left to slightly dry and then goes through many different processes and techniques developed over my years as a ceramic artist to create my intricate images onto the damp clay surface.
My decoration is a combination of painting with clay slips, carving and using sgraffito to draw the delicate lines onto each design. This takes many hours of work and no two pieces will ever look the same.
Once completed these are left to dry for a few weeks and fired twice in an electric kiln during which I have selectively glazed the main themes leaving the rest of the decoration matt.
I have developed all the clay slip colours myself making them unique and I am always testing new and exciting colours.

Tiffany works from her Dorset studio based on Portland creating ceramic forms decorated by hand with detailed Sgraffito drawings of many different plants and animals from around the world. Over time she has developed a very distinctive and unique way of painting with clay slips, carving and using sgraffito to draw her designs onto each form.
Tiffany says ‘discovering and specializing in the decorative technique of Sgraffito has allowed me to pair up my two loves of drawing and clay work’. She views every unique work as a three dimensional clay painting and a celebration of the natural world.
Trying to capture the movement and interaction between different creatures she finds very exciting and hopes to give the impression a bird may take flight from its ceramic home at any moment. Special care is taken to place each creature with in its correct habitat and extensive drawings and research goes into all her designs.
Tiffany also creates detailed watercolour and ink drawings which are turned into quality giclee prints and unique Art cards.
