Hand-thrown cylinder, using white stoneware clay. A dark glaze, with added grit, for peeling bark; splattered black and red underglaze, for fire and embers. Fired to cone 6, in oxidation. Height: 30 cm
I throw my pieces, striving for lightness and elegance in form, sometimes deliberately distorting them, always using multiple trails of glaze. More recently, I have moved to hand-building tall vases which then become canvases for organic, bark-like designs.
