Working with clay is therapeutic, but also quite challenging.
There are so many different clays and techniques, if I lived to a hundred I would not have had time to try them all.
For this exhibition I have put together a number of these techniques and clay types: coilbuilt sculptural pieces, like my humanoid-but-not human "visitor" series and Tangaroa's Garden sea scape which incorporates porcelain with the groggy stoneware; wheelthrown large bowls and platters fired to 1300C in my gas kiln; more delicate porcelain bowls, also wheel thrown, sometimes carved. Of course you can't have a pottery show without mugs!
Come and enjoy this variety and ask me questions!
