Owl Stoneware Clay Lantern

Light up the night this fall with these Night Owl Lantern sculptures! A beautiful and rare sight, owls have long been a favorite not only in the active birding community but with people in general. Given their reclusive nature and majestic presence there truly is something special about spotting an owl in the wild. Hand build, design, and glaze your very own unique handmade Night Owl Lantern from a variety of stoneware clay choices. *For use with battery-operated tealights.

In this workshop you will learn how to sgraffito. Sgraffito (in Italian "to scratch") is a decorating pottery technique produced by applying layers of color or colors (underglazes) to leather hard pottery and then scratching off parts of the layer(s) to create contrasting images, patterns and texture and reveal the clay color underneath.
