Selected Forthcoming Exhibitions:
The pieces are usually thrown, although new work is handbuilt. Bisque-firing is in a conventional gas kiln to 1060 deg.C. Many pieces have a 'resist' slip and glaze applied and are then fired in a 'top hat' fibre glass kiln to around 1000 deg.C, before removal when red-hot to a smoking chamber. When cold the resist glaze is chipped off and the pot cleaned up and waxed.
