I work in my Burwash studio in East Sussex using various materials including stoneware
and earthenware clays.
I make stylised ceramic animals and I smoke fire them or use the traditional Japanese
Raku method. Raku is a traditional Japanese technique of glaze firing linked to
the Tea Ceremony. It involves removing the glazed sculpture from the kiln when the
glaze is molten. It is then put in a reduction chamber and covered with sawdust.
The smoke penetrates the clay creating the black crackle.
Alternatively I smoke fire the horses to create unique colours and designs.
