You get to design your own pottery cup using sgraffito an ancient Italian technique for decorating pottery!
At the end of the event, I will collect them and take them to the studio to glaze fire them. I will then bring them back to the place you made them for you to collect at your leisure.

Our team had the privilege of gathering at Ben’s magical outdoor space for a lovely outing of crafts, storytelling and sensational food. Ben is incredibly warm and hospitable, gifted and passionate about the arts, and a pizzaiolo extraordinaire! It was a day full of creation, inspiration, and community on all levels!

Ben is an awesome human being, so down to Earth, a good soul with a positive attitude, and a true artist. If you have the opportunity to spend some time with him while creating a sgraffito piece DO IT! You just might learn something, maybe about art, maybe about yourself, maybe about life.

Benjamin is such a delight to work with! His passion for unique pieces is amazing. If you get the chance schedule a time to visit his studio. If you can’t find time to visit in person you should check out his Etsy page. His pottery is fantastic!

I have purchased a few mugs and a painting from Ross Benjamin wood. And I simply love the pieces, I have the painting hanging in my bedroom. It is absolutely majestic. I am so happy with the mugs, and art I have purchased from Benjamin that 3 of my friends have now reached out to him and bought his work as well. If your looking for a great gift, or a beautiful painting for your home, reach out to Benjamin.

Fun and relaxing! My friend and I signed up for this class. Very easy to make a personalized beautiful cup, even if you feel you have no artistic talent. Ben and his wife are super nice! Would definitely recommend.

Well THAT was not what I expected artistically and I am really glad we went. Spur of the moment decision by some friends to try this out last Sunday. Have been to many other pottery/paint type events but none with sgraffito. The technique involves scratching thru an outer paint layer to reveal the clay underneath with or without a splash of color. It was a fun group of strangers who shared their art and ideas freely while we created and enjoyed some adult beverages. Ben is super supportive, explains everything in detail and makes you feel confident as you create your own masterpiece. My only regret is not having a better idea of the type of pattern I wanted to create. I intend to return (this time with photos for inspiration) and cannot wait to see my created piece.

I’m in absolute love with the mug I made at Ben’s Sgrafitto party. It now sits right next to my sink and has become my go-to mug for drinking water. I find I like drinking water more out of a clay vessel than out of glass–somehow it tastes better! This is helping me to drink more water. The Sgrafitto party was a blast as well and it would be a fun party theme for the future. Thanks Ben!

Coffee always tastes better in the morning with Wood original mugs. Have been using my two for 15+ years and still going strong. The news designs look awesome bro! I might have to break a couple mugs “on accident” to make room for more.

Ben’s art and pottery has become part of the reason our house feels like a home. We have mugs, bowls, flower vases and pots and more. He even made us a custom sake set, it’s incredible! He is such a great person as well and very easy to communicate commissions with. I recommend him to anyone wanting to add more love to their homes with custom wares.
