How It’s Made

By Hand.

All of my work is handmade, predominetly on a potter’s wheel. Once the clay has been prapared the ball is transfered onto the wheel where the form is pulled. Once made, the peice is left to dry slightly overnight to a leather hard consistency before hopping right back onto the wheel to be trimmed with turning tools to remove any excess clay and refine the shape.

Once the clay has fully dried out after a week or two it goes into the kiln for the first firing – the bisque – where it will be slowly heated to 1030°c. The piece is then ready to glaze. Glaze is a slurry of different clays, chemicals and metal oxides which melt in the second kiln firing to create a glass-like surface, the metal oxides creating the colours. During this final firing the kiln will reach 1220°c.
