The last few years, since returning to ceramics after a long absence, has been a journey of rediscovery. Rediscovering lost skills. Rediscovering lost enthusiasm and rediscovering an aesthetic approach to working with clay that feels natural and unforced.
This journey can be seen in the work in my portfolio from the use of red earthenware through raku and electric fired stoneware to wood fired stoneware.
My latest work, with a strong Japanese influence is where I feel most comfortable.
I plan to explore wood firing with simple shino glazes on uncomplicated direct forms allowing the nature of the clay to develop honest pots with what I like to call beautiful imperfections.
The journey continues…………
