My smoke-fired pots are first fired in an electric kiln, sometimes I partly glaze them and may add a metallic lustre. Then one at a time they are surrounded with oak sawdust which slowly burns around them in an incinerator. The sawdust creates beautiful markings and subtle shades and colours. They do not hold water as they are non porous. My pots are not intended for functional use, apart from being displayed!
I also design and make jewellery. It can be smoke-fired or glazed with added lustres. Lustres contain metallic compounds and the gold and platinum lustres contain 10% real gold and platinum . Sometimes I add beautiful abalone shells or swarovski crystals. My jewellery is very popular as gifts and they are sent in a specially hand made presentation boxes.
