"Creating and learning, making beautiful, useful things for people to enjoy."
I love to Make.
Working the ancient clays with my hands.
The mystery of glazing, the huge temperatures.
The excitement of seeing what’s worked, and what hasn’t.
The pinging of the glaze as it cools.
Creating and learning, making beautiful, useful things for people to enjoy.
I work with stoneware and porcelain clays firing up to 1,250 degrees in my electric kiln. My current glazes are split into two groups: ‘spirals’ and ‘fire’. Occasionally I raku fire too, with friends, as part of The Pottingshed Collective.
