The making of

Handmade porcelain, a slow process

Making porcelain requires patience, a lot of patience. It’s a SLOW process and you cannot be in a hurry. Little flaws made during the making process will always show up at the end, even if you don’t see them while you’re firing the piece/putting it in the oven. Porcelain is not forgiving. This can be frustrating, but you learn to deal with it.

If you do take your time, the results are stunning. Porcelain is such a beautiful material. I just love its whiteness, its translucency, how thin it is and yet so strong.
