Porcelain in Jewellery is very effective - look at the work of Ruth Tomlinson and her beautiful Flora Collection. I recently had a go and found it quite tricky to work with, due to drying out and cracking.
|Drying out for Biscuit Firing|
I made various pieces using leaves and stamps to produce different effects.
|Biscuit Fired Pieces dipped in a Blue Celadon Glaze|
Once Biscuit Fired the pieces can be glazed or oxidised depending on the effect you want. I opted for a traditional Porcelain Glaze - Blue Celadon. After Firing it turns a lovely Duck Egg Blue.
