PROCESS

Every piece is unique and made by hand at my studio in Mount Victoria, Wellington

The majority of my work is made of white stoneware clay with a pinch of sand. I prepare the clay by wedging the sand in with the clay. I use different techniques to build my pieces, sometimes wheel thrown, slab built, pinched, coiled or a combination.

When the pieces are bone dry, they are bisque fired in an electric kiln at 1000˚C. It takes about 32 hours to heat and cool down. I then sand every piece, and apply glaze before firing them again at 1220˚C.
