The work is bisque fired (1000 degrees
centigrade) and the porcelain pieces are glazed with a variety of shiny glazes
by dipping and using wax resist. Most glaze firings take place in an electric
kiln in an oxidising atmosphere to 1280 degrees centigrade, but a few pieces
are glazed in a pale green celadon and reduction fired in a gas kiln to 1280.
The larger pieces decorated in coloured slips have a wash of manganese dioxide
and black stain to highlight details.
