I am a ceramic artist living in the Lisbon area.
Current Work - Availability
I love food and I love making beautiful things that people can use in their daily life, especially around food. I think that hand made ceramics enhances home made food and increases the enjoyment of time around the table. To that end I am continually developing glaze recipes in the search for exciting colours and combinations that have depth and flow to use on my tableware collection.
I work in stoneware fired in oxidation to 1250ºC with occasional lustre firings on selected pieces.
I make most of my glazes from recipes acquired and worked on over the years, always on the look out for those glazes that have a life of their own.
