The formal language of my work reflects the influence of hand built ceramics from different periods and cultures, combine with shamanistic graphic elements from Siberia. My works are not objects to use. Landscape, art and nature, is the world that my ceramics refers to and are influenced by. The natural world is reflected on a micro and macro level. Landscape and nature gives direction and orientation to my work. I am trying to imbue my work with pebbles and rocks together. At present I am not concerned with color. The surface of crackle patterns and spotting are resulting from the chemical and physical changes to materials that occur during the rapid firing and cooling of the raku process, and the linear markings resulting from my application of layers of slip and glaze. The Raku firing is between 850C & 950C and is completed by a prolonged smoking and cooling process. Finally the pots are cleaned and where applicable sealed with a natural wax.
