This stoneware plate is wheel-thrown and altered while the clay is still wet, enabling a sense of energy and animation in the form. The surface colour and texture is rich from the ash glaze in the extended wood-firing within an anagama kiln (a long, single chamber kiln built on a slope).

About this maker

Ben’s work is mainly hand-built, wheel-thrown and altered using stoneware, porcelain, and high fired earthenware clays. Forms seek to utilise and respond to the malleability of the material with work being altered and assembled while still wet.

The majority of his work relies exclusively on the interaction between ash, clay and fire achieved through extended wood firings in an anagama type kiln. However, recent pieces are exploring the potentials of using earthenware clays to bring out the character and attitude in the work.
