The ceramic reliefs are made in editions of 50. The original design is carved in clay from which a moulding is made out of casting plaster. Slabs of soft clay are then pressed into the moulding to get an almost identical relief which gets signed, carefully dried and fired for the first time at a low temperature. Before a second firing at a higher temperature each relief is glazed by hand. All reliefs are frost proof and suitable for outside display. Each is signed, has an edition number and a recessed hole in the back for hanging on a nail or a screw. It is recommended to secure them with a bit of blue tack as well. Prices range from £ 40 – 185. Most ceramic reliefs cost about £60.
