Porcelain and Stoneware 2017
This body of functional ceramics was produced from June to August 2017. All of the pieces are soda fired in a gas kiln to a temperature of 1300 degrees Celsius.
The blue/green pieces are made with porcelain and have a copper based glaze applied to the exterior. The brown pieces are made with an iron rich stoneware clay that reacts strongly to the soda vapours. This can produce a range of reds and browns, rivulets of gold, blue and black and grey surfaces reminiscent of granite.
