Functional and sculptural porcelain and stoneware is reduction fired to cone 12, 1300c in a propane gas kiln. The oxygen level inside the kiln is monitored and controlled to give a wide range of glaze colours. I researched building materials for many years and published numerous technical papers before becoming a potter full-time in 2003. My research enthusiasm is now focussed on glaze development and monitoring of kiln conditions. I use ethnological, archaeological and sculptural resources to inform the design of my work.
