Earthenware Vases with Underglaze Sgraffito

I threw two separate forms and attached them together with slip.  Black under glaze was applied in stripes then details added with sgrafitto carving. 

 I made these vases to explore the idea of beneficial weeds; bees and insects need them.  Images were painted on an unfired jar shape and details were scratched on.
