Momoko Otani achieves the perfect balance of decoration and simplicity with her all white sgraffito serving dishes. At once peaking interest with intricate lotus etchings while remaining quiet with a white on white palette. The pieces remain elegant backgrounds for serving elaborate dishes, dessert or a colourful selection of fruit.
Sgraffito is derived from the Italian word “scratch”. It is a technique of applying layers of slip onto a ceramic form and, while semi-dry, removing and etching certain areas to create a contrasting surface design. Momoko’s works are inspired by her love of lotuses and banana leaves. Her white sgraffito series display lotus buds and petals in bloom. Each piece is one-of-a-kind, featuring unique variations. They simply brighten up your day. Ceramics that will be cherished for a lifetime, knowing so many loving hours were put into the making of them!
