What's so Ausum?
How is the candle holder made?
Clay is the base for all studio pottery. The clay is placed on a turning wheel to mould it into the desired shape. A very distinguished characteristic of wheel-thrown pottery is the lines created while wheel-throwing. Symmetrical circles are made in the structure that spread the light beautifully.
All pieces of the set are dried completely before firing for the first time, called bisque firing. The colour of the clay determines the colour of the fired piece. The candle holders are made in small batches with attention given to every piece to ensure a perfect outcome.
Glazing is a skill in itself and is an ultimate challenge for the potter. Glaze to pottery is like icing on a cake. The bisque-fired pieces are glazed by dipping them in the liquid glazes and voila! Our candle holder is ready to ship to you!
