Kate mixes her clay from raw materials and casts each piece one by one. The overlaid images are originally drawn in pen and ink on paper and then scanned and printed in glaze. The image transfer (decal) is then applied to a glaze fired piece and is re-fired for a third time, causing the imagery to melt into the surface of the glaze. During this final firing, small copper crystals will often begin to grow in the glaze, creating beautiful glittering patches of copper and splashes of orange randomly throughout the glaze!
