About Me

I am a retired Primary School headteacher. I have set up a home studio and continue to develop my throwing skills. I like to alter, carve and incise my pieces, being more interested in shape, design and form, than colour and glaze finishes. I am currently working in smooth, white earthenware and would eventually love to move on to porcelain once I feel my skill level justifies the cost! I have a small electric kiln with digital controller, which has enabled me to eliminate glaze crazing issues. I prefer the smooth, matte finish of my bisqued ware, to glazed pieces, and am yet to find simple matt / satin glazes that add protection without detracting from the unglazed form. I am on the brink of starting to mix my own glazes, which I hope to get into after going on a glazing day with a professional potter in September.
