Decoration is by pouring slips thinly or applied thickly by brush on the wheel to give a 'wrapped' look. Pots are thrown on a momentum wheel or slab built in earthenware clay. The pieces are raw glazed with a lead bisilicate clear glaze, decorated with coloured glazes and fired to cone 03 in an electric kiln.
