Creating Handcrafted Ceramics: A Detailed Process

Depending on the pieces, she uses two techniques. Modelling and turning. Each hand-crafted piece requires a certain amount of time to design.
The first step is to prepare each ball of clay. She calculates the weight of each one according to the piece to be made, then kneads it to remove any air bubbles.
She then turns her pieces and gives them time to dry (several days). The turning stage is important, as it's at this point that the piece gets its final shape. She carries out a first firing that rises to 980 degrees (firing over two days between the rise and fall in temperature).
She then cleans and enamels her pieces, and finally carries out the final firing, which rises to 1240 degrees and seals the piece.

I do, in case of special request do reach out to TA-DAAN in chat or via e-mail and we'll let you know if we can meet your needs. The piece will be made to order and so it will require 3 weeks.

I work in stoneware. The pieces are therefore watertight and can be put through the dishwasher and microwave. I recommend hand-washing for longer life.
