Whiteskin Pot by Rachel Pritchard

the process

Rachel employs a variety of traditional and contemporary techniques and processes within the production of each individual piece.

 

The body of the pot is hand-thrown in a white earthenware clay and fired to 1100 degrees.  

The finishing is a slow and meticulous process of refinement of the form, design of a “resist”, before final application of up to twelve layers of glaze.  The “resist” may incorporate textiles, lace, wax, paper, latex or adhesive.

 

A second firing next, where the colours come to life.  

 

The glazes are applied to enhance and stress the precision and elegance of the form.
