o.O..... Oh my!!!
This one is gorgeous!! Instead of the butterfly on the flowers, you have the flowers on the
butterfly...just genious!!! The cups & saucers have a pretty shaped pattern on them...very shiny!!
I love the colours & ur photo set. I think you should make a beautiful photo book of ur work & it would
be a work of art itself!!!

Wonderful! Do you always make your own cups, plates, and saucers, or do you sometimes purchase them?

Basically, I always buy tableware and decorate them with handformed ornaments, but more complex forms such as baskets, jewelry or bigger sculptures are always entirely handformed by me.

This is beautiful. I love the flower decorations and the painted butterflies. How did you fire it?
Reply

Thanks for the comment and interest. There were four fires altogether. First I formed orchid ornaments and fired them (2 fires in the kiln). Later I combined them with the cups, saucers and teapot and painted twice with two fires in between.

Thats a lot of firing. Was it reduction or atmospheric, and what cone did it go to?
Reply
:iconjs-design1:
Sometimes my sets require even more fires (from 5 to 7). All the fires were atmospheric, but I have a little difficulty to describe the cone because I work in Celsius degrees.
1st fire (bisquit) 1190 degrees C
2nd fire (glaze) 1280 degrees C
3rd and fourth fires (porcelain paints) 800 degrees Celsius
