About the mural process
I use a wooden hammer and a hand roller to create a big slab from white clay. Then, I draw my idea with a wooden tool and start to work on it. After completing the relief I cut it into sections. Leather dry it slowly for around 3 days and start to work on the sections. The pieces are hollowed out on the back (if needed) and indicated with a number. The next stage is for all the mural pieces to be put together, and let them dry very slowly for 4 – 5 weeks. Then, I use sandpaper to smooth the edges of all pieces and bisque fire them at Cone 06. In order to glaze the mural, I have to put together again all the pieces, sometimes they are 100. Usually, I need multiple firings (at least 3) at Cone 05 – 03. Very oft I use the crackle technique in the glazing. To complete a big size mural takes at least 2 – 3 months.
