Wednesday Evening Tutor:
Beginners and Beyond Wheel Throwing
Clay is a natural and earthy element – one I can readily relate to and work with in many ways. I make functional and sculptural work at my studio, south of Auckland, in rural Ramarama. My love of nature and sustainability is my inspiration, leading to all manner of clay building, by wheel, hand or mold – followed by surface treatments of carving, drawing and glaze. I use a range of firing methods; electric, gas and Wood fired – completing my own wood kiln build in 2013.
