I use a European manufactured Porcelain and throw all the forms off the wheel. Once the pieces are leather hard I draw and scratch into the surface with a fine pointed tool. The line work is then filled with oxides and colours or alternatively, I paint straight onto the surface of each pot. Once the colours or oxides are on, I then work each layer back, to reveal tones and shadow. The pots are then ready to Bisque and following glazing on the interior only, are then fired in a Reduction firing to 1300.
