Carved Pottery

Each piece of hand carved pottery is one of a kind! After making the piece using my potter's wheel or hand building the pottery using my slab roller, it is covered with a colored slip (really wet clay that is colored black) then I use a variety of tools to carve through the color back down to the white clay.

My background in printmaking has definitely influenced how I carve pottery. You'll find that my carved functional and decorative ceramics are reminiscent of wood cut or linoleum cut prints. The texture begs to be touched.

  • Custom House Numbers | Sgraffito hand carved ceramic by Gravesco Pottery Indianapolis  Gravesco cool handmade ceramics | Rebecca Graves Pottery |
    Quick shop

    Every number is completely unique. 

    I begin with a unique slab of stoneware clay, coat it with a black slip (that’s just really wet clay with colorants added) then freehand carve the numbers revealing the white clay beneath. Once each tile is dried completely it is bisque fired, clear glazed, then fired a second time. 

    A large hole can be cut into the top to hang it as I have, or a smaller hole if you’d prefer to hang it on a small nail or screw. 

    Each number is random in size with an average width of approximately 4”. Length varies from 6” to 12”.

    The high fire stoneware is durable enough to hang outdoors year round.

    Please allow 6-12 weeks for your custom address numbers. 

    This listing is for a single number. Please choose as many numbers as you require. Also, please add a note at checkout to let me know which numbers to carve for you.

  • Bottled Poetry Charcuterie + Cheese Board | Hand Carved Sgraffito by Gravesco  Gravesco cool handmade ceramics | Rebecca Graves Pottery |
    Quick shop

    Hang the Wine is Bottled Poetry Charcuterie + Cheese Board on the wall or use it to serve tasty appetizers to your friends and family. The one of a kind freehand carved quote by Robert Louis Stevenson will be revealed as you munch away.

    Measures approximately 4.5" x 11.5".

    I do recommend hand washing your Charcuterie + Cheese board since things bang around quite a bit in the dishwasher. If you choose to use the dishwasher anyway, your pottery will last much longer if you're careful to place it where it won't vibrate or bang against other dishes. Always remove the suede hanging thong before cleaning.

    NOTE: you may not receive the exact board featured in the photos but it will be similar and darn cool.

    Each piece of pottery is carefully wrapped and packed to ensure safe delivery.

    I don’t know if you loved Mad Men as much as I did, but in spite of the horrific mysogyny and general mayhem in the office, there is something so darn delightful about a martini in the evening. While my happy hour days have been traded in for Birkenstocks and clay, I still have a hankering for an end of week extra dry martini with snacks and friends. That’s the inspiration for the Martini Greta platter. 

    Use your handmade, hand carved one of a kind platter to serve delicious charcuterie, fruit or hors d’oeuvres. It’s also just right for a delicious pile of grilled asparagus wrapped with prosciutto. 

    Can you tell I like to eat? 

    Measures approximately 8"wide and 13.5” long. 

    The detailed image is freehand carved using the sgraffito technique which means it is truly one of a kind.

    While it is microwave safe, I’m going to be extremely impressed if you find a microwave large enough to accommodate it.

    The platter is dishwasher safe. Due to the one of a kind, handmade nature of pottery, I always recommend hand washing for longevity so it isn’t banging around in the dishwasher.

  • I Said I Am Sorry Vase | Gift for Apologies | Handmade by Gravesco Pottery  Gravesco cool handmade ceramics | Rebecca Graves Pottery |
    Quick shop
    On sale

    Sometimes saying sorry just isn't enough. In addition to changing our actions, a vase full of flowers with a backup apology may just help the situation. After all, a person willing to apologize and admit they are wrong is a strong person worthy of forgiveness in my book.

    "I said I am sorry" is freehand carved around the body of the handmade pottery vase.

    Measures approximately 3.5" wide and 6" high. It's the perfect size for a dozen daffodils or a hand picked bouquet.

  • Cheers Martini Cat Serving Bowl | Large fruit bowl | Gravesco Pottery Indianapolis  Gravesco cool handmade ceramics | Rebecca Graves Pottery |
    Quick shop
    On sale

    You don't have to be a full on cat lady to enjoy an oversized fruit bowl with a carved image of a sassy, slightly intoxicated cat drinking a martini, right? I'm not going to judge you either way.

    This "Cheers" cat bowl is freehand sgraffito carved and one of a kind. It is dishwasher safe but I still recommend hand washing because things get banged around quite a bit in the dishwasher.

    Measures approximately 10" diameter and 3" high. It will hold a full 5 lb bag of apples, a tossed salad for 4-6 people, more cereal than you should probably eat in a week, enough candy for your neighborhood trick or treat, or it can just sit empty on the table as an object d' art. My cats have also been known to curl up in similar bowls because they can. They don't need any other reason, they're cats.
