Porcelain Fantasy Mugs

These mugs are made from high-fire porcelain clay. To make them, I carved my original designs on a flat slabs of clay and poured plaster over them to make press molds. Next I press slabs of clay in the molds, pull them out, bend them into cylindrical form, and attach bottoms and handles. This process obliterates some of the detail, so I recarve and clean up any flaws. I then add colored stains to the details, bisque fire and glaze fire.
