cone 6 glaze detail
September 2021
This is a detail of a ceramic form that just came out of the kiln a few days ago. I'm happy with the way the crystals formed on the surface, and the development of the glaze patterns.

I've been getting some good test glaze results recently from my cone six firings. New surfaces and colours of test glazes can often suggest new forms to try. It's interesting how the creative process works sometimes with a back and forth development of ideas.

We have enjoyed a beautiful summer here on the Bruce Peninsula. We feel lucky to have had fine weather this year, and a chance to see more of our family and friends. Autumn colours are starting to make an appearance.

I have frequent updates about my work on Instagram.

I had a conversation last year with Paul Blais for his podcast The Potters Cast. We talked about my life as a potter, and the joy of new challenges. Here is a link to the podcast interview.
