Black and White porcelain

Each piece is unique and conceived at the time of making. The bowls, bottles and platters are hand thrown on the potters wheel and resolved with minimalist black and white decoration. There is a sense of ambiguity about the work and the twin wall forms are essentially sculptural.


The work is once fired in a reduction atmosphere to Orton cone 10. The pieces are burnished to achieve a smooth surface.
