I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
I am largely inspired by structures in nature; layers in rock formations, crevices in dried riverbeds, knotty tree bark. These structures are translated in clay and used for the pots that originate from the wheel.
My technique is based on the fact that clay shrinks while drying.
By processing clay dry in wet layers small tearing or deep cracks arise.
The work is frequently finished with a very matt ‘sandy’ glaze in earthly colours and fired at cone 6.
Sometimes pieces of drifting wood are added or the weathered pots get a contrast with gold lustre.
