My work is thrown using a dark, groggy stoneware. Borne from my years as a production potter for the Leach Pottery, I enjoy the repetition of throwing simple forms. I am interested in the contrasting textures that can be created using thick slips on damp pots. My favourite qualities of the material come out while the clay is still wet. In my treatment of the surfaces, I try to accentuate those qualities, while working harmoniously with the form. The work is glazed and high-fired in a reduction.
