close up In Glaze Lustre


I make a wide range of pottery - bowls, vases, lamp bases, candlesticks, dishes, jewellery and more, but everything has my special glaze on it. All the In Glaze Reduction Lustre glazes that I use I developed. In Glaze Reduction Lustre has been around for more than 2000 years - but I was lucky to have a technician at Duncan of Jordanstone, Dundee called Paul Spence who encouraged me to create my own glazes. I continue to experiment to this day and am still searching for that elusive dark purple and a dark green, but enjoying the results along the way!
I mainly throw pieces but enjoy adding hand built elements and slip cast my vessels.
