I have been making one-off ceramics for over 40 years.
My forms are strong and simple but have complex surfaces. Each piece works as a whole, combining form and pattern.
My work usually uses techniques of layering glaze and painting patterns with wax between the layers of glaze, the wax acting as a resist for subsequent layers. This meticulous process creates complex patterns and textures within the glazes. The work is fired to stoneware temperatures.
Alongside my wax resist work I am making “ground” pieces on which layers of glaze are ground back to reveal patterns within the structure.
