Raku Work, (April, 2013).
Smoke Fired `Thumb` Pot, April 2013.
January 2013: New work, Raku bowls meant to fit in the palm of your hand. No bigger than a chaffinch, smooth and very tactile, these are designed to be handled and stroked.
February 2013: Raku bowls, some so small you can just fit your little finger into the top, no footring to reinforce that beautiful echo of a natural egg shape.
Small thrown porcelain forms: Approx 5cm by 5.5cm (can vary).
Now you view a small part of my compulsion and wonder connected with glazes and shapes. I love to explore this avenue, adding different ingredients to the mix, reduction firing to see what unexpected results I can produce. A unique microcosm of colour, shape and chemistry within a small egg shaped vessel. These have no foot ring but are rounded so that as you rest the pot on a flat surface it `wobbles` slightly and tilts up at you to give you a glimpse of what`s inside.
