home portfolio murals  

PROCESS: I use a wooden hammer and roller to create a big slab from white stoneware. Then I draw with wooden tool my idea and start to work on it. After completing the relief for a few days I cut it on sections. Lether dry it slowly for around 3 days and start to work on the sections. Each piece is hollowed out on the back and indicated with number. Next stage is all the mural pieces to be put together and dry very slowly for 3 - 4 weeks. Then I use sand paper to smooth the relief and bisque fire the pieces at Cone 05. To glaze I have to put together again all the pieces. Usually I need multiple firings (at least 3) at Cone 06 - 03.
To complete a big size mural it takes at least month and a half.
