I have chosen to use a white (or light ) stoneware clay body to allow the illumination of color to show while firing at a more ecologically sound mid range temperature. Most of my work starts with slabs of clay that are designed by unique handcut stencils onto Tyvek using colored clay slips, subsequently altered into the forms that make up both utilitarian and sculptural work. Most pieces are then given individual hand painting to make each piece unique, but within a theme.
All my work is uses non toxic glazes food safe, reasonably oven proof, microwave safe, and dishwasher safe.
