Current stoneware work reflects a change in direction, now concentrating on abstract decoration, using under glaze slip and stains and then adding layers of colours onto a white glossy glaze.
Clay is either Scarva Earthstone or Dobles of St.Agnes white Stoneware. Fired in an electric kiln (oxidised) to cone 11, 1285 C. I enjoy making bowls, platters, vases, and other domestic ware as well as wall hangings.
