The Ganesha sculpture is modelled by hand with a high quality white stoneware clay. After careful drying time, it is fired in my kiln.
Glazing and Second Firing
I use gold for decorating my ceramics. This gold comes in a chemically processed and very toxic liquid form, but is quite safe and quite beautiful after firing.
I have to apply this liquid gold very carefully with a brush to the surface. Here I am with with my special protective outfit!
Embellishment with crystal Stones
Now high quality high quality crystal stones are set into Ganesha’s jewellery.
Finally, in order to protect all surfaces that have not been glazed, I apply a liquid wax layer with a brush.
