My working methods produce a unique range stoneware pottery, each piece being the result of one off or small batch production. First the clay is mixed and wedged, then hand thrown on the kick wheel or slabbed to produce the forms. After the first firing the glaze is applied by hand. Careful control of the kiln atmosphere during the glaze firing brings out the character of the ware, its colours and durable finish. I formulate my own glazes using a variety of minerals to produce a rich colour response.
The stoneware is fired to 1280°c – Orton cone 9 – in a reducing atmosphere using propane gas.
All the stoneware pottery is microwave and dishwasher safe.
Prices range from £5 – tiles, to £500 – large floor vase.
