About this piece
My new ceramics are thrown on a wheel, using either porcelain or stoneware clay. Fired to a biscuit temperature of 1050 degrees centigrade. They are glazed in various ways using a transparent white glaze and various coloured glazes and fired to 1220 centigrade. After this firing, I apply ceramic transfers that are taken from my digital print work. They are fired once more to 830 degrees centigrade and in the final firing I use gold and coloured lustres to give the pot a luscious feeling and look with dripping gold.
