At the present time the pottery discipline I specialise in is RAKU fired vessels. It is an ancient Japanese glaze firing technique. Tea bowls used in the ‘Japanese Tea Ceremonies’ were glazed using this method. The use of gold embellishments, known as KINSUGI, is also an ancient Japanese technique which I have incorporated into my work. The clay making methods I employ include manipulated cast wares and various throwing techniques. Stoneware pottery using barium glaze recipes, resulting in shades of blues and purples, are among my favourite surface finishes. The ceramic experimenting and learning processes goes on ad infinitum.
