When I first started to work with clay, it was always a goal of mine to one day develop my own unique glaze. Once starting out down this road, I soon realized that you need some kind of degree in rocket science, or at least, paid more attention in high school science. Although my understanding of the chemistry involved is limited, through a process of trial and error, along with some luck, I managed to produce a robust glaze I’m pretty happy with. The handmade stoneware vessel was created purely as a canvas for my glaze. A vehicle to experiment with, allowing me to play with colour combinations and the different effects achieved by layering glazes. The glaze responds directly to the iron contained in the clay, creating a surface full of imperfections reminiscent of one worn and weathered. It’s this flawed surface that I love so much and believe holds the true beauty of the work.
