My work is fundamentally concerned with the treatment of its surface
and that is to combine two contrasting techniques of carving into clay
and the burnishing of its surface, into one coherent theme.
The carved shells are thickly coiled from coarse crank clay and the design is then carved out. They are bisque fired to 1000°C and it is at this stage they are used as press moulds for the inner burnished form. Oxides and glaze are rubbed into the texture of the carved shells which are then fired to 1260°C. The burnished forms, using white stoneware, are assembled, coloured slip applied and then burnished repeatedly. They are
bisque fired to 1000°C and smoke fired, in an open container, using a
mixture of different types of wood shavings to achieve different
effects. Beeswax is applied when the pots are still warm giving it a soft, silky and tactile finish. Gold, silver or copper leaf detail is applied to the interior of the double skinned form. The finished forms can then be displayed in various combinations.
I have been involved in Ceramics for about 12 years and have been
developing my work since graduating from South Thames College in 1999.
