Process

The sides are thrown on the wheel and stretched to an oval shape while still soft. A rolled out slab is then attached to the rim and gently sponged multiple times until it begins to sag. It is then decorated with layers of different glazes and oxides. The accompanying stone is thrown on the wheel, altered and glazed.
