I am interested in surface decoration; the detail and quality of the finished piece, whether it is from a batch or a one off. I make a range of domestic-ware, including chicken eggcups, jugs, bowls, coffee cups, mugs and plates. These come in several finishes, such as; high-fired glaze painted slipper a rich vibrant blue with subtle variations from the kiln firing. I make one-off burnished pieces (mainly vase) which are slip decorated,burnished,lustred,smoked and then polished. These pieces are unglazed and display a tactile eggshell surface quality, beneath of which lies a wispy smokiness.
