Studio Potter

Wood fired soda glazed domestic ware

WELCOME

I am a studio potter based in Mackaytown, Paeroa, New Zealand and specialise mainly in wheel thrown work. I also enjoy wood firing and vapour glazing.
My Galleries page has links to my picture galleries and information about why I make these kinds of pots.
The Information page has my contact details, my gallery contacts and lots more.
I’m keen to take on workshops and other teaching assignments and I have more information about what kinds of classes I run under my Teaching page.
My Glaze Technology page contains a basic glaze course and information useful for exploring the world of glazing.
Another of my interests is kiln designs and I have built a number of wood fired, gas and diesel fired kilns, see these on the Kilns page along with other radical kiln ideas.

From my latest firing a couple of new ideas have shown really interesting possibilities. Thick porcelain hakeme style on the insides of tea bowls followed by a thick luscious celadon, and a new white crawling shino that offers interesting possibilities over the darkest of my clay mixes.
