About

My current work is mainly in porcelain, which is hand thrown and assembled. It is fired in an electric kiln and glazed using my own recipes. On some work, acrylic resist is used to create a deep relief surface-decoration which is filled with glaze, the platinum and gold lustres are applied by hand and fired to fix them. Finally, the crazing is stained. In 2010 I built a catenary arched gas-fired kiln and am now producing/developing soda-fired work.
