About the Artist
For many years Roland Summer has been investigating and refining a
surface treatment known as Terra Sigillata and then firing his pieces
using a raku technique that he calls ‘Lost Glaze'.
My pieces which are handbuilt, burnished, slipped with natural or
coloured terra sigillatas and then raku-fired with a crackling-away
glaze show a synthesis of ceramic technics and formal languages of
different ancient cultures.
See catalogue: Roland's major new solo show at Internationales Keramikmuseum Weiden
All actual pieces are coilbuilt in different technics from grogged
German stoneware clay. They are burnished when leatherhard and covered
with thin layers of terra sigillata.
