I work with coloured clays which are marbled, rolled, stretched and manipulated to achieve a variety of effects. The work is high fired and the surface is usually left unglazed, giving a textile-like quality. The range includes functional and sculptural vessels, wall pieces and garden sculptures. Work is formed from slabs of clay incorporating colour and pattern during the making process. Sometimes press moulds are used and thrown or coiled sections added. I also make mosaic garden/patio tables, bird baths and water features.
All work is fired in an electric kiln, mostly to 1250°C and is unglazed except for the inside of vessels. Some lower temperature work uses dry glazes over bright blues and green.
