Just Scratching the Surface

A new line of tile from Ann Sacks introduced me to a new term: "sgraffato." Sgraffato is technique where a surface is scratched to create design and texture. Each of these tiles is a one-off, but certain motifs are followed to allow for some pretty stunning murals.

Perhaps not for an entire backsplash, but I could imagine something like this behind the cooktop.
