Individual hand decorated porcelain with coloured under glazed patterns
Claire's work is inspired both by the northern Irish landscape and the microscopic. Porcelain bowls are a large feature of the collection created using the process of press moulding. Once a bowl is made Claire sands it to reveal a smooth, blank canvas. Each piece is then decorated by hand using coloured underglazes. This high quality process results in white-coloured porcelain which is the perfect contrast to the busy patterns.
This is my handmade and hand decorated porcelain tea light from the Teal range.
It holds a single tea light.
Firstly I slip cast the vessel using my own moulds with a beautiful white porcelain. This then heads to the kiln where it is fired for 10 hours. After that comes the fun bit, I begin to decorate the piece using high quality ceramic glazes with each dot being applied by hand, making each piece truly one of a kind. Then its off to the kiln again for a further 10 hours at which time I apply a high gloss glaze to give the piece a beautiful shine, which will capture the light in any room.
When you receive the item you will notice small crazing marks on the piece, this is part of the making process and intentional, adding to the effect of the piece.
Please note that all our products are made by hand and therefore there will be uniqueness and variations in the finish of each product from the original photograph.
