I use either iron rich stoneware or porcelain bodies for my work which are thrown and sometimes altered on the wheel. All my work is biscuit fired before glazing. I use wood ash, tenmoku and kaki glazes, often with a white overglaze.
Porcelain is glazed with wood ash or celadons, sometimes with manganese. I am continually developing my wood ash glazes to produce a range of sympathetic and natural effects with the different clay bodies.
All my work is fired in my gas kiln to cone 9 (1285 deg C) with heavy reduction so that the iron in the stoneware reacts with clay bodies with the different glazes creating richly speckled oranges and browns.
