I start by doing a hand sketch in my notebook. Then I build my pieces mostly by using coil building and slab building. Then the pieces will slowly dry on the shelves until they are ready to be fired. I don't have my kiln yet so I have to bring my pieces to a firing facility and transporting extremely fragile greenware by car is my least favourite part of the process. Packing them securely is so important and often tricky. After the first firing, I glaze the pieces. Lately, I am trying out new colours and textures with different glazes which I hope to lay out in my new collection. Once they are all glazed, I then again transport them for the second firing. It is a slow process and that's why I love ceramics. The time and care put into each piece are rewarded when I am happy with the final result. Currently, I make all of my pieces by hand-building techniques but soon I will start using the pottery wheel to create a broader range of items.
