Woodfired ceramic vessels and objects. Here my interest and fascination for clay as material show itself. I use local clay, found material, rock, and sand mixed with clay. :
Making: I am throwing simple domestic objects from the process of a production potter. The making process also involve finding rawmaterials and processing them.
Deconstruction: To tear the objects apart and put them together in a new order, or to put them together when still very soft, to focus on the plasticity of the clay.
Firing: I fire my objects in a wood/salt kiln to get interesting paterns from the firing on the objects, I put coal, ash and sawdust and salt on the objects before fireing to decorate the objects deliberately and to push the clay to its limits and to deform on some parts and crack on some parts.
Grinding and sand blastering: Further I grind or sandblaster the objects after firing to create contrasts between the different parts of the object.
