[ezcol_3quarter]My ideas and inspiration come from the beautiful Cornish coastline/countryside and whenever possible, materials for my pots are sourced locally and made completely from scratch including paper-porcelain for my latest work.
Stoneware clays come from a quarry in St Agnes and very often, I use ‘found’ ingredients collected when out walking that can include beach sand, river mud, twigs covered in lichen or odds and ends that the tide brings in.
All pieces are either thrown on the wheel or hand-built from stoneware and porcelain clay – sometimes a combination of both – before being twice-fired in an electric kiln, first to 1040°C and then glazed to 1240°C.
[ezcol_3quarter]I show my ceramics in various South West galleries and continue to do that; I am also very pleased to be a part of the The Craft Kiln at The Old Workshop in Charlestown. [/ezcol_3quarter] [ezcol_1quarter_end][/ezcol_1quarter_end]
