Salt Glazed Yunomi cup - turquoise
65mm h x 70mm Diameter
Salt glazed, wood fired
The cups in this exhibition are typical of the style of pottery I enjoy making. Whether in stoneware or porcelain, my focus is on exploring both form and function.
I began working with clay in the mid 80s in Stratford, where I quickly became enamoured with wood firing and this continues to be my preferred firing method. It is the unique result of the interaction between clay, flame, ash and salt which inspires me. After years of brick collection and kiln building endeavours, I fire most of my pots in my wood/salt kiln. I hope my pots bring a touch of warmth and perhaps beauty to those who use them.
