The basis for my current work is an inlay of stoneware into stoneware; white into white, white into black, black into white. The marks are not painted or glazed on but are a result of that inlay. Construction includes the addition of slips, underglaze, high temperature wire that does not melt during firing and glaze. Post firing additions include oil paint, cold wax medium. Clay is a different sort of canvas....the material is integral to the outcome in my work.
