Nicola’s stylish ceramic candle holders are made in a traditional ceramics process called slip casting. The process requires Nicola to first produce her own plaster moulds from wooden originals which she turns on a lathe. Nicola pours liquid earthenware clay into the plaster moulds and allows the clay to set in the mould.
Once released from the mould Nicola hand carves the outline of the mountains and applies a colour slip to this area. The trees are also added at this stage, Nicola scratches into the coloured slip she has added to reveal the white clay below for the trees.
The candle holders are then fired in her kiln before a clear glaze is applied, they are then fired for a second and final time.
As each piece is handmade and illustrated freehand, no two pieces are ever exactly the same.
