Parian porcelain sculptures

Parian clay is fired at 1240 degrees and has a translucent finish, similar to marble;
I love the clean, crisp, smoothness of it. 
 
My work in Parian porcelain is experimental:
Every piece is individual and has its own title. 
 
I often experiment by dipping textures, such as lace, or even llama wool, into the slip and draping it over the smooth surfaces of a pot. 
 
It's exciting to see the results when they emerge from the kiln.
