In my forms I strive for simplicity and subtlety. I actually only use variations of two or three basic bowl, vase or beaker forms. all hand-made on the potter's wheel. In simplicity lies beauty.
The next challenge is to decorate the pieces in a way that will do justice to their form and to the materials;< used.
The clay I am using is David Leach Porcelain. which is manufactured and imported from Stoke-on-Trent, England. It is superior in colour, texturete and translucency to any other porcelain I have previously used. It is also very hard to wok with, so I tend to have a high percentage of losses.
I would like to thank Arne Aase for his pioneering experiments with this technique. lt is stlll very new alld there is a lot of scope for more developments !
Any comments or further enquiries regarding the technique are welcome by E-mail to s94 email@example.com
