Using a variety of clays, often to achieve special effects, I create pieces that can showcase my designs. It’s a wonderful combination that provides a canvas that will reveal the joys of clay work and painting. And although I love reduction firing, polluting our environment takes away any excitement I might gather from the finished piece. So after initial bisque firing, I fire in oxidation in the Cone 6 range. I often refire pieces several times until I am satisfied that each creation is the best it can be. I use no toxic glaze materials.
