My sculptural stoneware vessels are each individual, with the shape allowed to develop organically.
I use techniques similar to those in dressmaking, using shaping and darting to create a curved shape out of flat pieces of clay slabs, before fine modelling and trimming to enhance the shape and sharpen edges.
I love texture, sometimes adding a layer of textured slip to a piece, and using ‘dry’ glazes and volcanic glazes to further create interesting details in the surface.
