  1. From the album: 2016

    Thrown bowls, cut at right angles to the rim. Thin slabs textured with bark, stamps, shells etc. - pieces attached to back part with front cut edge eased forwards to emphasise the contrast between the organic and engineered. Oxide washes applied at dry greenware stage, fixed in the bisqued firing. 3 back pieces were dipped in transparent glaze, front one dipped in tin white (to cover a repair that fired a different colour!). Fired to 1100oC in electric kiln.
  2. From the album: Playing with mud 2016

    Semi porcelain. Pinched edge and added pieces then washed with copper and cobalt before bisque. Transparent glaze over. Inspired by fungi and lichen growing off the side of trees.
  3. Recently I have been making a series of textured pieces. I plan to fire some of them in a wood kiln and some in a soda kiln. I am wondering if I can use oxide washes to bring out the textures. Do I need to worry about the oxides running when hit with lots of soda and/or wood ash? If anyone has a pic of pots they've done this way I'd love to see them! Thanks!

  4. I am working on a special project and would appreciate help identifying a glaze (Raku or otherwise) that matches closesly the tones found in the picture below. On the other hand, would it perhaps be easier to find a clay body that when fired matches this tone? From my own view, the piece does not seem to have been glazed. If that is the case, can anyone identify a similar clay body that will achieve these tones? I need the piece to look as though it is centuries old. Thank you!
