The picture carrousel above offers a scope into the mysteries of porcelain firing.

The porcelain is thrown on a wheel and shaped in very much the same way as when I work with the earthware.

The initial biscuit firing takes place in my own kilns in Svendborg.

Next stop is in Skælskør - the International Ceramic Research Center Guldagergård, where I and a colleague have rented our way into a large, wood-fired kiln.
