Trade Enquiries

I am seeking gallery / retail outlets that have a shared passion for studio ceramics and with whom I can build a long term business relationship. I want to work with like-minded people building sales within a given geographic region with an exclusivity arrangement in place.

Wherever feasible I would like to visit with you to discuss face to face your requirements and how we can work together to make a success of our trading relationship.

Whilst I will continue to sell via my website / Etsy shop. I will ensure that the retail price levels I show allow you to compete on a level playing field.

Once we have started to trade I will add you to a Stockists List with full contact details on my website to help promote your sales.

If this sounds of interest, please feel free to contact me anytime to discuss next steps by phone (mobile: 07887 813738 / landline: 01480 412866) or  send me an email here.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Glazes

I make all my own glazes using recipes developed over many years to suit my particular firing conditions. I fire my pots in a gas kiln to circa 1300C under ‘reduction’ over a 12 hour period – i.e. I deliberately starve the flame of oxygen during certain phases of the firing. As a result the flame searches for oxygen in the kiln firing chamber. It strips out oxygen molecules from the metal oxides and minerals present in the glaze and clay. This can produce radical colour changes. A good example being my Copper Red glaze which under normal oxidising conditions (e.g. in an electric kiln) would actually fire to a pale green!

I have developed reactive glaze finishes using specific rutile / titanium combinations and by overlaying specific glazes to create some beautiful ombre and radiant colour effects.

My glazes are leadless and food safe. My pots are microwave and dishwasher safe too. Many of my pots are also oven safe – this is influenced by shape / cross section. Please ask for more details
