Why does it take so long for us to get the prints back?
Once the prints have been taken the clay needs to be shaped & any details names etc imprinted, the clay then needs to air dry naturally, once the clay is properly dry it will get its first firing in the kiln. Once fired the imprints are then carefully handpainted to show up the maximum detail possible, the prints are then glazed & fired again in the kiln. Once the prints are complete they are either strung on a ribbon or framed depending on your option chosen. As you can see there are a lot of processes involved!
