I work in stoneware, fired in oxidation at cone 6. Much of my work is hand thrown, although I also integrate hand building for some of my functional ware ans sculptural forms including vase forms and lamps. I have a palette of five to seven favorite glazes that I have developed through my career and inter-mix these in a variety of ways to achieve different effects. Lately, my favorite process involves surface carving when the clay is green. I then apply a glaze inlay in the image areas, protecting these with a resist and framing these in a solid application of glaze.
