About the design

Sgraffitto was designed as the 'Collectors Day Pieces' for the third Studio Day held on 18th October 2009. The design is reminiscent of Jazz but with a different colour combination. Jazz has bright reds, blues and yellows whereas Sgraffitto has muted colours of greyish greeny blues with flashes of orange. There were three pieces in the collection: a large lollipop vase, a medium lollipop vase, and a globe paperweight.

Trials of Sgraffitto Jazz, a follow-on from the collector's pieces, were made in 2010, but the design did not go into general production. Examples of two of the trials are shown here. These were bought directly from IOWSG.
