'These vessels were
made using a white earthenware clay body hand thrown on the potters
wheel and finished in a warm Olive Glaze, complemented by rich
dark speckles of copper green. When designing this glaze I was
particularly drawn to the surface movement and the distinctive
patterns created upon it by the intense heat of the kiln. This
interaction can clearly be seen in the glaze and has been perfectly
frozen in time. These dynamic markings are completely unique to
each piece and produce many interesting variations to the surface
composition. This finish is also much enhanced under strong lighting
and reveals many more wonderful colours. As with much of my work,
I have left visible a few subtle throwing lines and unique markings
to show the origins of being made on the potter’s wheel.
The intention here was to combine the above elements with the
shape and form to create a collection with an overall harmonious
sense of balance.'
