                          How are they made

To create life like forms Catherine works from photos and live models, and puts to use  a life time of artist skills to sculpt a full figure in  porcelain clay. Once completed the arms, legs and head are separates  from the body creating individual pieces that can be handled easily. To enable the sculpture to be duplicated a plaster mould is made and  green wear cast.

                                 

                            What is green-wear?

Green-ware is the name of the fine  fragile hollow porcelain cast formed in side the  plaster mould.To create a porcelain doll all imperfection need to be smoothed of the ware’s surface, it is fired in a kiln after this process the  cast is ridged  and is now called bisque or biscuit-ware.
