Clay is a natural product dug from the earth, which has decomposed from rock within the earth's crust for millions of years. Decomposition occurs when water erodes the rock, breaks it down, and deposits them. A clay body is not the same thing as clay. Clay bodies are clay mixed with additives that give the clay different properties when worked and fired.

 

 

Work shown here comprises of handbuilt sculptures fired at either earthenware or stoneware temperatures. A variety of finishes are used, including glaze, pigments and acrylic paints. No moulds are used in their creation - slab and coling techniques are used to create the beasties and pieces inspired by mythology & nature.

The stoneware beasties are weather proof, but to ensure longevity please move to a frost free location for the winter months – dragons being fond of the fireside during the dark cold days of Samhain (November) to Ostara (March).
