Hand building process
Each vase is made from grey stoneware clay, which dries to an off white. This vase has been hand built by rolling clay, joining the pieces together with slip and once leather hard, spaghetti ribbons made with an extruder using wet clay to reduce cracking, are attached to the exterior. The vase has two firings, the first to around 1100 degrees centigrade and the second, to over 1200 degrees. As the vase is handmade, the shapes can be irregular – each item is unique! The process takes more than 2 weeks to complete – this allows for the original rolling out, drying before the first firing, glazing and then final firing and cooling. The vase has been glazed with a white satin on the exterior and clear gloss on the inside.
The price is for one vase, handmade in my studio in the Surrey Hills
