Glazing

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.
