Stephen’s work continues to explore form and surface. Influences are diverse and come from the natural and built environment.
Current Work and Availability
The process of hand building, slow and methodical, involves a constant development and refinement of the forms. Each piece is subjected to the Raku-firing at least once, and sometimes twice, in order to achieve a pleasing outcome.
The clay used is a mixture of Earthstone handbuilding body and Royale grogged porcelain. The glazes have evolved over many years and are based on Borax and alkaline frits, combined with china clay, ball clay and various colouring oxides, depending on the surface effects required.
Career and Education Background
