Scott Garrett

Scott is a long established illustrator. Pottery is a recent addition to his creative world and he's still learning the craft. He has long had a passion for pottery, with particular interest in face jugs from the Southern folk pottery tradition of North Carolina and Georgia. This along with the English country slipware tradition, especially North Devon harvest jugs with their spectacular sgraffito. Sgraffito, is where the terracotta clay is dipped in thin, liquid white clay. When this dries out you can then draw and scratch back into it to reveal the brown clay below, which now becomes the line colour. The glaze then turns this white surface into a lovely warm honey colour.
