Gillian Holt makes hand built and press moulded stoneware as well as slip-cast parianware and porcelain.  The stoneware pieces are sometimes partially glazed, typically with one or two different glazes and overprinted with text and images.  The slip-cast work is usually on a smaller scale and often takes the form of a bottle.  The parianware is often described as self glazing because in a high temperature firing it develops a satin sheen on the surface.  The parianware and porcelain pieces are also printed with text and/or images, which are often created out of old family photos and documents.
