Speed Firing
Recycled ceramics, found steel, found and bought glass, raw clay, processed clay, volcanic siltstone and limestone

My work explores the process of Hyper-Firing. The technique was formed by found ceramic material interacting with known processed ceramic material, pushing the envelope of chaotic interaction. I’ve been an evangelist for ‘process over product’, avoiding ceramic trends of function and mass production. The raw, found and bought materials from Kandos have led to the development of my Hyper-Firing Theory, that promises optimal speed firing using only solar power. Recycled ceramics, found steel, found and bought glass, raw clay, processed clay, volcanic siltstone, limestone and a new form of internal kiln engineering to create objects driven by the experimentation of Hyper-Firing process.
