Artistic Process

All of my work is made from high-fired porcelain and stoneware and is predominantly wheel thrown. The actual processes are quite simple and have been developed over years of making. The majority of the clay I mix myself, however I do use a commercial claybodies from time to time. The pieces are fired in a gas kiln and on occasion an atmospheric kiln seen as a wood kiln.
