Rosa Friedrichs Ceramics – map #9

Ceramics and Pottery

Rosa Friedrichs is a ceramic artist from Asheville, NC. She makes functional pots decorated with sgraffito. Sgraffito is a decoration technique in which a top layer of slip is carved through to reveal the contrasting clay body beneath. The technique and visual product are similar to a linoleum or woodblock print. Rosa's motifs are inspired by flowers, vegetables and fruits. She enjoys both black and white sgraffito and colorful sgraffito. She hopes her imagery provokes positive feelings and memories and that her forms make their way into people's lives, infusing joy into their daily routines.
