THE ARTISTS PROCESS
Once the shape is made on the wheel it is left to dry for a few days, until leather hard. Whilst drying the handle shape is created and also left to slightly dry at the same rate as the cup.
When hard enough it is put back on the wheel and the bottom is shaped then the handle attached. To ensure the handle does not warp or come apart props are made to hold the shape up and keep stable. It is then left until completely dry before being transported to the studio where Jayne starts the bisque firing process, which takes about 24 hours. Once cooled the glaze is applied. This piece has been created using 3 different glazes to create the effect. Then it’s ready for the second 24 hour firing. This is truly a piece made with absolute love and craftsmanship.
