Long Ceramic Times Build up Excitement!
Finally, the first prototypes of the Chakra Collection are in my hands, still warm, straight out of the oven.
This process requires several steps, starting with wheel turning, then patiently waiting for exsiccation. After that, a long cooking at 1000° C, followed by the glazing process and several final touches, then a second baking at 940° C… There is no room for mistakes throughout the process, and patience is definitely a quality that every good ceramist has learned to include in his or her own way of dealing with things.
But if everything goes smoothly, then the light on the glossy surface of the YELLOW GOLD glaze, contrasting with matte TEAL GREEN on the outside, gives a new shape and volume to the object. Indeed, light gives life and finally completes the creative cycle!
