The Process

The barro color used on these pieces is a blend of four colors - brown, red, orange and pink. The clay is con·tin·u·ous·ly kneaded and put through my Lucy Clay pasta machine until the perfect color is achieved. Shapes are then cut out from the flattened slabs using my collection of shape cutters. Indentation phase follows to produce the ubiquitous dents all around.  Each dent is "hammered" on with a ball stylus to create the whimsical hammered texture. Circle pieces are also cut from the base, rolled into circular beads and then carefully pierced with a needle.

Once baked, each piece is sanded, sealed, hand drilled, assembled, photographed and packaged by me. To learn more about the making of each product, please visit my instagram page: @virauful.
