Wood-fired Stoneware and porcelain. All my work is thrown on momentum and kick wheels using soft clays, which I mix at the pottery. I Make a small amount of table ware, although most of my time is now concentrated on one off pieces. Currently working on some large scale thrown pots up to 5ft tall.

I use two wood-fired kilns. Kiln 1, is a 125 cu ft down draft kiln fired to cone 9-11 in 24 hrs using soft wood off cuts. Most of the work for this kiln is glazed with a variety of wood ash glazes including apple, oak, pine, and straw ash. Kiln 2 is an anagama type kiln fired for 3 or 4 days with a mixture of hard and soft wood to cone 1213.
