Current work is a synthesis of technology, raw materials and various
production methods (throwing, slip casting and slab building). The pots
combine a porcelain body (carved) with ash, blue and green celadon,
copper red and chun glazes.
The pale greens of both celadon and ash glazes contrast with the warm flashes from the
wood kiln on the porcelain body generated by the impurities in the materials reacting
to the vageries of wood firing to create a very personal means of expression.
