This teapot was hand built, partly using moulds, hand coiling and modelling, and fired to 1260°C – stoneware glaze temperature. The work has a crystalline glaze: the crystals are held in the glaze suspension and grow during the cooling cycles in the kiln. In essence the kiln is stimulating volcanic activity of high temperature followed by slow cooling so that the crystals ‘grow’ in the glaze.
