This is a piece that takes many stages and processes to create and the end result showcases the care and love that has gone into its production.
All items are handmade with love over a number of weeks and fired in Carys' studio in Thornlands in South East Queensland. The clay does not like to be rushed and needs time to dry slowly as each step in the making process is completed. Once finished they are biscuit fired to 1000 degrees before glazing and hiring to 1260 degrees to allow the clay to vitrify and the glazes to develop.
