The wheel forms the basis of my work , skills learnt through repetition throwing and the discipline required help to inform and develop the individual pieces.
I enjoy and get great satisfaction from all stages of the making right through to the final firing.
All glazes are made by me from research and experimentation and trials of glazes based on oriental tradition.
Together with the reduction technique help to achieve a distinct range of glazes.
Stoneware and Porcelain reduction fired to 1280’c. Functional, and
domestic ware and individual pieces mainly thrown using a variety of
techniques and production.
Gas fired kiln most of the work fired to cone 10.
A variety of distinctive glazes used based on classic oriental glazes – in particular Crackle glaze Chuns Tenmoku, Celedons, Iron reds Blue and White ware.
Slips and other oxides used to alter and vary the surface.
Currently introducing Shino glazes to achieve a variety of orange and textured surfaces.
