I have been making wood-fired work since 1991, working primarily with "anagama" style kilns and unglazed clay surfaces. Most of my work is made using a porcelain style clay that I developed especially for wood-firing. I enjoy the colour pallett of earthy blushes through to dramatic glassy blacks acheived by the interaction between this clay and the wood-fire process.
I work with a range of construction techniques including wheel throwing and slab construction. It is important to me that the imprint of my hand is evident in the finished work. For me these marks become a point of connection between the hand of the maker and that of the user.
