I make mainly raku, obvara and pit-fired birds and animals, and combine these with other materials such as old oak beams, branches, metal, and vintage tools.  I love the contrast of the smooth ceramic with the rough materials, and the random nature of finishing work with the raku method, allowing the cracking and smoke to create unexpected effects, and using the stands to give a sense of movement.
