About MeMy work is wheel thrown, altered, and handbuilt pottery and sculpture using raku, stoneware and porcelain clays. They are bisque fired to Cone 04 (approx 1900F) and then brushed with white terra sigillata and burnished. Most of the pieces have one or more metallic compounds applied to produce colors ranging from reds to blues and greens. Wire, salt, copper sulfate crystals, iron filings and organic materials are added to the surface and the pot is sealed in aluminum foil and gas fired to 1200F. After cleaning, vases and flat slabs are hand waxed and buffed. Pieces that are carved and textured are finished with a clear polyacrylic coating.
