My current work responds to light, line, colour and texture observed in rural and coastal landscapes. Clay forms are produced by hand-built techniques using red earthenware blended with black stoneware crank clays. White engobe is applied to the clay surface sometimes being drawn through when wet. Brushed coloured engobes and underglaze colour are then worked together on the leather hard clay surface like paint on canvas. After a first firing further underglaze colour may be added before forms are brushed with transparent glazes and fired to 1120˚C; post- firing some surfaces are reworked using diamond pads.
