William England

Since school, I have been hooked on clay, and I established my own studio in 2012. I enjoy creating distinct textures in stoneware that show the making process. My Raku work is thrown and then polished using burnishing or terra sigilliata. The surface is blackened by plunging the red-hot pot into sawdust soon after removal from the kiln.

With porcelain, I create "agateware" by throwing a mixture of differently coloured porcelain bodies. I also used paper-porcelain to make forms out of slabs which are decorated with either woodcuts or linocuts before being assembled.
