How are these patterns made? 

 

I make stripes by putting different colored porcelain layers together. Every single stripe is a layer of porcelain. Once one layer is dry, another layers will be stacked on it. Repeat and repeat. It is another working method than painting the stripes directly onto the surface. I am fascinated that the stripes from this "layer technique" can be so straight and tiny fine. The colors are defined and clear.

 

More than 46 hours

 

Each one of the Cookie Factory porcelain earrings takes at least three weeks to make from start to finish – from preparing the colored porcelain (raw material), to screening, to combining the layers, to shaping, to drying, to sanding, to glazing and finally firing. I fired the porcelain with 1280°C to ensure its stability and quality. Firing takes about 10 hours and another 36 hours for cooling the high temperature down. Once the porcelain pieces are taken out of the kiln, I control each one before combining it with the earring posts and uploading it to my online inventory. It’s a multi-step process, and that’s just on the manufacturing side. Behind the finished pattern designs, there are more “unsuccessful” experiments. In short, working with porcelain is a long process, which requires time and patience.
