 ceramics

My ceramic work is mainly Hand built, wheel thrown and altered using stoneware, porcelain and high fired earthenware clays. Forms seek to utilise and respond to the malleability of material with work being altered and assembled while still wet.  

 

The majority of work relies exclusively on the interaction between ash, clay and fire achieved through extended woodfirings in an anagama type kiln. However, recent  pieces are exploring the potentials of using earthenware clays to bring out the  character and attitude in the work.
