Long Trays

The Long Trays are built with the template of the largest kiln shelves that I could source. The Trays are hollow-built to exactly fit the 120 cm long x 45 cm wide 'hollowcore' kiln shelves from Italy.

As practiced by the English China industry and the ekwc, the works are bisqued to maturity (stoneware) and glazed to the lower temperatures of modern lead glazes. The fluidity of the glaze colours is achieved by firing the trays on a slope in the kiln.
