The early ceramic work of Tom Sanders (1924-2008) is signed ‘Dorian Sands’ and was sold through Georges Department Store.
Tom Sanders continued to build his skills as a thrower and decorator at the Hoffmann pottery in East Brunswick, at the Arthur Merric Boyd Pottery in Murrumbeena, and with John Perceval.
Sgraffito (in Italian “to scratch”) is a decorating pottery technique produced by applying layers of color or colors (underglazes or colored slips) to leather hard pottery and then scratching off parts of the layer(s) to create contrasting images, patterns and texture and reveal the clay color underneath. The layer(s) of color can be underglazes or colored slips.
