Each item created is handmade with ceramic clay. Once the design is molded into the desired shape and size it is placed into an oven at a temperature of 1000°C until hardened. After the piece has cooled, it is then hand painted using metallic and oxidized paint in order to keep its natural color and vibrancy. Once the paint has dried, the item is again placed in the oven and finished with a shiny, glossy glaze.
