All my work is made on a kick wheel and often thrown in more than one piece. Still on the wheel, my work is altered, reformed, wire cut and on occasions re-thrown. All ceramic pieces are fired to stoneware temperatures of 1300 degrees C in a wood firing kiln with some salt vapour introduced towards the end of the firing.
Wood ash and salt combines with the clay body and slips to give a distinctive surface quality. Form, texture and the manipulation of the firing are designed to interact with each other and are inseparable in their contribution to the finished object.
