Rows of Blank Canvasses

These pieces have been fired to 1000 C ready to be fettled and then decorated. Because of the lack of green strength the body is first fired before any fettling is carried out using wet waterproof sanding paper. Once dry the pieces are decorated first with a wax resist and then painted with various soluble salt solutions. Thereafter the work is fired to 1250 C to achieve vitrification and translucency

New Work at Objekt

Some of my most recent work can be seen at Objekt on 7th Avenue in Parktown North, the new design hub of Johannesburg. This venue is a real treasure trove and if you haven't yet been in, a treat awaits you.
