CATEGORY: Porcelain
METHOD: Slab Building

“I have always enjoyed the challenge of firing thin clay panels; it is a continual tussle between the clay, the kiln and myself. It is important to me that the clay is textured before I draw on it; I pay attention to the panel edges preferring those which meander a little. My panel designs are mixtures of many influences – Oriental art, Naïve art – landscapes observed in England and France, traditional designs”.

The techniques used are slabbing and press moulding, the clay surface is always textured. The clay bodies used are grogged Porcelain – a very good clay to work with.
