Building method - coiling. Clay bodies are various but each is heavily grogged with added combustibles wedged into the body. After the form has been built and has spent a considerable amount of time drying, slips and oxides are applied. It is then fired. After the first firing, final colouring and adjustments are made to the surface by hand painting additional oxides and sometimes minuscule amounts of glaze. As a result of this process each piece has been individually considered and is therefore a ‘one off’.
