I’ve been a Potter for nearly 5 years and throwing on the wheel is definitely my favourite means of creating something, hopefully a little bit of art…
I’m still trying to understand the enormous subject of ”glazing”, and haven’t even started on the operations of the kiln yet!
I have recently started spreading slip on my pots to create a really good tactile finish which I then glaze along with flux to get some movement down the pot.
I’ve also had a little success with Raku firing, although i think the summer nights with beer and pizza helped!
I help out on Mondays at the Jinney Ring Craft Centre (Hanbury) so if you are in the area, pop in and say hello.
