Collection of porcelain from kiln .
For twenty seven years I have been making contemporary terracotta garden ware. Using a blended clay and a large gas kiln myself and colleague Bill Parkes have produced a range of Terracotta.
Following four ceramic residency programs in Jingdezhen China I am now focusing on small scale porcelain pieces. These are functional cups, bottles, vases and Chinese tea bowls.
Some are fired in an experimental low tech Charcoal Kiln at Cabalva Pottery near Hay-on-Wye.
Everything , it is my professional life.
