This is thrown, porcelain pottery by Tim Christensen. I love the drawings that he creates with the sgraffito and how they relate to the form. Because the drawings are busy and detailed, he keeps the ceramic forms fairly simple, occasionally extending the qualities of the image into the form itself. Many of his pieces seem to contrast sky and sea, a concept that is represented well with the black and white values. I like how the artist uses various lines and patterns to create value, this makes the pieces very interesting and exciting to look at.
