I had many different jobs before turning to ceramics, ranging from working in the music industry and running a wine bar to working in TV and video.
Thrown, double walled sculptural ceramics. Work is raku fired using the slip resist technique. Some pieces are gilded using three types of gold and copper leaf. New work is monochrome and incorporates areas of texture and burnishing.
All work is thrown, then altered, and burnished. I bisque-fire to 1050°C. I use a ‘resist' slip and apply glaze to specific parts of the piece. Work is then fired in a gas fired kiln to around 1000°C, before be placed glowing hot into a smoking chamber. The resist glaze is removed and the pot cleaned up and waxed. Some pieces are then gilded with gold or copper leaf.
