Porcelain offers an unrivalled surface for mark making. In its damp state it allows a wide range of treatments, revealing tiny variations of mood and intention. Some patterns are more obviously drawn from everyday observations of both the natural and man-made world, others are far removed from their original inspiration.
In contrast, the sensuous classic porcelain glazes provide a perfect balance, revealing less of the mood of the moment, and relying on the timeless appeal of strong forms. At the end of the day, I like to think my pots will give practical pleasure through being used.
