An ongoing series of highly textured vessels inspired by the textures of the land around me on the Isle of Skye. Each unique piece is hand formed using techniques of texturing and stretching the clay. I use a variety of firing techniques - raku, wood firing and saggar firing, to develop the colours and density of the pieces and relate them to the natural patterns of erosion which I see in the hills.
