Individual & Ethical Ceramics

'My intention, in both the process of creating the work and the work itself, is to combine bodily and earthly components with spiritual elements to feed the soul'

I use only locally sourced materials in an ethical manor to create my Pit Fired and Raku ceramics and stoneware utilitarian pieces. 

Pit Fired Ceramics

These pieces are fired by the ancient method of Pit Firing. Once created by hand, the prepared work is fired in a pit in the ground. Organic materials are added to the pit such as bananas, seaweed, pine cones. Each of these materials create a different coloured smoke when burnt - this coloured smoke goes into the surface of the porous clay creating a completely unique patina. 

All materials are locally sourced.
