My principal concerns at this time are producing three ranges of work, mainly because I tend to get frustrated with monotony:

  1. Wheel thrown work is generally functional, porcelain and stoneware pieces. I particularly enjoy the turning process, observing the strength and integrity of the form which emerges from peeling off layers of clay. I have two main methods of finish:
    1. Two glazes, a Tenmoku and a blue glaze which under heavy reduction turns an amethyst purple
    2. Embellishing with leaves or other markings, colouring with underglazes and then applying a clear satin glaze.
  2. Finely carved porcelain lighting and
  3. sculptures of birds and animals.
