After college in Rochester, Kent (now called the University for Creative Arts) I set up my workshop producing domestic stoneware and terracotta garden pots with the aim of working economically and efficiently to make pots for everyday use at a price that most could afford. That was 1980, and now although my work has gone through many changes my original aims are still current. I no longer make terracotta and make less tableware, my main output is stoneware for the garden, individually decorated pots and one-offs.
David's current work includes reduction fired stoneware, domestic/garden and exhibition work.
David uses a self built gas reduction kiln, fired to 1280c. Glazes are his own formulae, some made using local materials.
