About the artist
I make mainly wheel thrown pottery using a limited range of clays, oriental glazes and raku pieces.
I make mainly wheel thrown pottery using a limited range of clays and oriental glazes. My work ranges from large bowls and vases to smaller functional stoneware and porcelain pieces to eat and drink from. The forms celebrate the particular qualities of the porcelain or the stoneware clay with a range of oriental glazes I make myself.
Work is decorated with marks introduced during the making process. These are turned and finished before the pieces are bisque fired, Glazes are applied through dipping and pouring as well as being sprayed. The work is fired to 1280 degrees in a reduction kiln. I also use the raku process.
My Influences are the local environment, the South Downs and Chichester Harbour and the sea.
I trained as a 3D designer specializing in Ceramics and I am a qualified Art teacher. I will be demonstrating throwing and turning throughout the open studio weekends as well as a Raku firing (weather permitting).
