"Abstract patterns with references to my travels and my enjoyment of landscape"
Most of my work begins with a thrown cylinder which is then altered, reassembled and added to. It becomes a surface for painting and layers of bright coloured glazes are built up in abstract patterns with references to my travels and my enjoyment of landscape. These pots are stoneware and glaze fired to 1260 degrees in an electric kiln. Sometimes they are worked on with many different layer of slip and glaze and lustre. I am also making smaller porcelain versions in white and coloured glazes with horizontal landscape patterns, also fired in an electric kiln to 1260 degrees. Some are then enhanced with touches of gold lustre.
