Making process

How the pottery is made

The pots are either hand thrown, jollied or press moulded depending on their shape and size. After a drying out period they are bisq. fired then dipped in a base glaze. Each pot is then individually hand decorated using brushes, sponges and slip trailors to apply layers of different coloured glazes.

The final firing is in a reducing atmosphere, reaching a temperature of 1300˚C, this creates the wonderful rich diffusion of colours that so characterises Sophie’s work.
