Raku & Stoneware
After my first pottery class in 1998, I was immediately hooked. Clay is my passion. Its possibilities are endless. My present body of work is Cone 6 Stoneware and Raku with some experimentation in wood firing.Major influences include the sea, leaves, grasses and shells. They make their way into my pieces. Gentleness speaks to me. I like to carve facets, and most recently I have begun glaze trailing. To make my mark I accentuate fluidity and softness. Any day that includes Raku firing is a good day. I strive for the rich look of contrasting metallic and crackle glazes against the unglazed, blackened clay. There is suspense when a piece is taken from the smoking container and revealed. The amber colour from ferric chloride sprayed on the hot piece fresh from the kiln produces an unmatched warm depth. After all, clay is my passion.
