Jacqueline Leighton Boyce:Technically I work as an earthenware ceramist firing to temperatures no higher than 10800 and I usually use red terracotta clay. The surfaces of my work are created by multi-layering and I usually fire each piece at least three times within an electric kiln. I create layers of colours and illustrations using slips, underglazes, glazes and lustres. All my work is handbuilt apart from the use of a press mould for my plates. Every piece I make is original.
