Inspired by a recent commission, the new African safari animals are now featured in my Etsy store, choose from this cute Elephant or the stripey Zebra.
Each is carefully cut from a slab of clay, mounted on a small pottery cube using a special wire that retains its strength in the kiln. Once safely through the first firing each is dipped in the wet glaze then allowed to dry a little then decorated. I paint them with specialist professional ceramic colours.
Painting is all freeform will little margin for error. That’s the fun of it!
Then for the final glaze fitting where the colours are set their brilliance and glossy colours to the fore and then they are stored ready to sell.
Have a lovely weekend x
