ceramic vessels


The majority of my ceramic work has its origins in the thrown vessel form, from which variations on  themes are developed. After throwing the pieces are cut and reassembled with additions. When dry the delicate task of carving and sanding the surface of the pieces creates the textures that are needed for finishing. Several firings are then made to low stoneware temperatures with different glazes and slips, and then lustre fired to around 700 degrees.
