....Then in 2005, I made the moulds.

 

I was invited to come to the Czech Republic on a teapot-symposium, May 2005, in the factory of Thun, a well known East-European manufaturer.

So there was some pressure to have them ready so I could cast them in this magnificent porcelain.

I actually made all the vases myself, however, a HUGE luxury was to have the kind ladies of the factory take care of the glazing...

On the pictures here you see the ease with wich these women glaze my pots.

This part of a production line with only one glaze and specialized people for each task, is something I can be somewhat jealous of... It beats the individual glazing process that I use, any time...

These are pictures of glazing the first 4 series that were made during the symposium

 

(the glazing was done by the capable hands of the employees of Thun)
