Hand made wax welter
The wax melter is hand thrown on the wheel from a grey stoneware clay which dries to an attractive off white. After overnight drying, the wax melter is securely placed on the wheel for trimming and refining with wire tools. Following this process, the melter is then left for a minimum of a week to completely dry so all moisture evaporates before the first firing. After the “bisque or biscuit” firing – the glaze is applied and a second firing takes place. The complete process takes at least two weeks to complete but often longer as I only fire when the kiln is full, conserving electricity and being as kind to the environment as possible.
Whilst I am keen to keep the wax melters as uniform as possible, they are hand made and each will have it’s own unique attributes.
The price is for one tubular vessel with opening and circular saucer for wax or oil (approx 2 cm deep). The melter is currently available in either white or black with an additional magma glaze as shown in the photo, hand made in my studio in the Surrey Hills. The white vessel also has piercings as demonstrated on the photo. As my studio is small, I don’t have huge stocks and only ONE of each colour available at any time. I am always happy to make others in different colours – please email me if you are interested.
