Our glazing and decorating techniques are kept economical. It suits our personalities to spend minutes rather than hours decorating. We use a combination of dipping, wax resist, spray gun & hand decorating to glaze our range.
Dipping: This involves using tongs to dip the full pot in glaze to create a background glaze. We will wax the foot & wipe off excess once this base coat is dry.
Wax Resist, Over pouring & Spray gun: We use landscapes as inspiration for our glazing work. Using the pouring glaze to create & land or sea horizon. The spray gun is great for adding a depth you only see once fired, so it’s a bit of luck how well it works.
Brush work: Once the base color is added then Judy uses long flowing brush stokes in combination with a wax resist layer. With a build up of up to 4 glaze colors it’s always great to see how the kiln firing reacts & brings each color out at different spots.
The final result: We love bold modern colors on pottery. The rich colors have always been popular with customers and we love opening a kiln full of individual pots and no breakages.
