Kim Birchall Ceramics & Glass

Nunney resident Kim Birchall creates ceramics with stunning crystalline glazes. She also runs classes at the Nunney Gallery in Church Street.

Kim’s ceramics are hand-built and wheel-thrown with Raku and stoneware glazes. Her handmade glass is blown, cast and fused work.

The crystals are created in the kiln using elements such as silica, zinc, metal oxides and rare earth. These are heated in the kiln to temperatures that promote crystal growth.

These stunning autumn-inspired crystalline glazed porcelain vessels are created using red iron oxide – rust, basically.

Cobalt oxide and vanadium pentoxide help create beautiful patterns in the glaze of these crystalline dishes.
