Technical
Each piece is created using a combination of traditional pottery techniques such as modelling, slab building and press moulding. The clay used is a red earthenware clay on to which layers of slip, glaze and raw oxides are applied to achieve a rich and varied depth of colour and to accentuate detail. The journey to the finished piece involves many processes which are all carefully hand crafted to achieve a unique style.
