I am a sculptor living in Torbay, I make work from a few inches tall to life size, working from life models and photographs.

Specialising in Raku, smoke and wood fired firing techniques, wood fired in my own homemade kiln. Surface, texture, colour and glaze effects are an important part of my work, especially the results of the Raku process. Each sculpture is completely unique. i work mainly in clay of all types from terracotta to porcelain, making my own body mix including paper clay. I incorporate different materials such as sawdust, crushed brick, sand, etc to achieve different surface textures. i also mix my own glazes so as not to be limited by the commercial range. The work is fired to 1000c. The Raku pieces are removed from the kiln at this temperature and sprayed with water and buried in sawdust to give different glaze effects.

The wood fired work is fired in my 40 cu. ft. wood fired kiln, in which I can fire 4 life size figurative sculptures, they are then smoked n a fire for the random smoke effect, sealed with a water proofer and wax polished.
