Lynnea Schwieters creates wheel thrown porcelain pottery and applies surface decoration including clay slip, altering, incising, sgraffito, pressing and carving techniques, resist and masking application. There is a strong floral influence in my work. 

In this surface decoration stage, I am working on a technique called glaze inlay where you use an X-Acto knife to cut around my applied design creating a line where glazes will pool and accentuate the depth of imaginary.
