My work is slipcast porcelain using coloured clays, it is high fired which means that all objects are suitable for dishwashers and ovens should the design be suitable for such usage. I either model my original design in clay or use a plaster lathe which works on the same principal as a woodturning lathe. From the models I make a plaster mould which allows me to make numerous copies of the same object. However with individual decorating and hand finishing no two items are ever the same, just similar.
Works on the lathe are generally of a practical nature such as my lidded vases for cut flowers, candle holders and conventional dishes. Animals I model in clay and then take a cast, these are tweaked with tails,ears and individual expressions. My love of flora and fauna is apparent throughout my work.
