I am making a sculptural pot in my asylum (studio) using the coiling method. This one is in local yellow clay which will fire to terracotta, red-brown in the pine wood-fired kiln.

 

I use the coiling method to gradually build up large sculptural forms. We use local clays to make both terracotta and salt-glazed forms. I use the wheel to make domestic pottery but sculptural forms are my main work.
