Avebury

My Avebury vessels and dishes are all inspired by megolithic stone circles and burial chambers.

Each piece is hand formed and then decorated using coloured slips applied onto the damp clay. I use a mixture of sgrafitto mark making, painting and slip trailing to add depth and texture.They are then fired in the kiln to a temperature of 1120 degrees centigrade and then glazed and fired a second time to 1050 degrees centigrade.
