Most of my work is wheel thrown although a proportion is press moulded. I now have three kilns. The latest addition is a three chambered wood kiln which incorporates a small Anagama firebox and a salt chamber. There are two showrooms at the pottery where a range of pieces can be seen from Guinomi and Yunomi up to large bottles sometimes 25 inches tall. The wood kiln is taking up much of my attention right now.
The pots are glazed at 1300deg. C., There is a gas fired salt kiln, an oil fired reduction kiln and the three chamber wood fired kiln.
The glazes make use of local materials, particularly wood-ash, but also using local stone dusts and clays. The salt glaze takes advantage of a technique discovered in the 15th Century, using common salt, which produces a hard and durable glaze with a rich and sensuous surface.
