About

I make stoneware pottery, each piece being the result of one off or small batch production. First the clay is mixed and wedged, then thrown on the wheel or slabbed to produce the forms. Glaze decoration is applied by brush or trailer. The glazes are formulated using a variety of minerals to produce a rich colour response. Finally careful control of the kiln atmosphere during the glaze firing brings out the character of the ware and the durable finish.
