About the Collection: Porcelain is slaked down and cotton lint is added to the mix. This creates paper porcelain clay. The clay is pinched and formed into the sculptures. When dry it is bisque fired to cone 010. Then pit fired using copper oxides and some sea salt to create copper reds, the black is from absorbing the smoke and the white areas are the white of the porcelain. Pit firing is not an exact science so no two pieces have the same surface coloring.
