The potter's wheel is a wonderful tool. Equally, I do find the freshly cut clay surface fascinating. All the making starts and finishes on the wheel, including flattening, changing of form and wire cutting. Wood ash flying inside the chamber of the wood firing kiln enhances the edges generated by the wire cutting and deposits itself quite naturally on the rest of the form. Form, texture and the manipulation of the firing are designed to interact with each other and become inseparable in their contribution to the finished object. I just set up the circumstances to the best of my ability and allow things to happen.
