Artist Statement

Artist Statement

I make porcelain pots using a combination of throwing and slab building techniques.

Platters, bottles and vases are favourite forms. Currently, I am also exploring some stoneware clays with porcelain slips and glazes, which, though connected, have quite a different feel.
I play with edge lines, gestures and finger markings into soft porcelain, enjoying off-round, oval and rectangular shapes as much as the round.
After the pots are made, I use multiple layers of high temperature glazes to work with the forms, building up colour, visual and tactile depth.

Glazes include celadons, fluid wood ash glazes, high silica white and a copper red used for highlights, fired in a gas kiln to 1300 degree in reduction.
