Spent most of the afternoon decorating work with wax resist and soluble salts. This is one of the decorated pieces before being placed in the kiln and fired to 1260oC. Always a tense time as so much can happen during the firing. Let's see what tomorrow brings!

My fascination with the ceramic process is a major influence in my work. My aim is to create pieces which possess an ethereal quality. My current work is in bone-china and I employ a number of ways to treat the surface including solutions of soluble metallic salts, which permeate the surface and when used in conjunction with resist techniques, a subtle watercolor effect is achieved.

I have been experimenting with mixing small amounts of oxide into my soluble salt solutions, producing results that I find to be very exciting. Below are 2 examples from a recent firing that I am particularly pleased with.
