My work is an exploration of colour and texture inspired, mainly, by the effects of light and ageing on architecture, artefacts and landscape. My technique of layering vitreous slip onto wheel-thrown vessels, vases and bowls provides a rugged texture, which contrasts with the satin-matt glaze inside. The pots are fired to stoneware temperature in an electric kiln, which gives me total control over the subtlety of the finished colours.
Individual stoneware pots, distinctive for their painterly exploration of colour and texture, inspired mainly by the effects of light and aging on architecture. Her technique of layering vitreous slip onto finely thrown vessels and vases provides a rugged texture which contrasts with the satin-matt glaze insides.
