The Dichotomy of Calm and Chaos 

There is a beautiful dichotomy of carefully creating a smooth, blank canvas of clay, and then giving away any control of the finish to the whims of the kiln firing. You are setting up all the right conditions for pattern and colour to emerge within the saggar. Depending on how the materials change, how the wire twists and moves against the clay, or the different coloured fumes combine, the results will always be unknown. 

This year I´ve become drawn to exploring warmer, more fiery colouring, reminiscent of the summer´s heatwaves and wildfires.

The resulting work shows peaceful calm, alongside disorganised, scorched earth vistas.
