June Ridgway | Smoke-fired vessel (2012). "Coiling is my preferred handbuilding technique because of the slower considered pace; scraping and fettling as the pot takes shape. Burnishing then forms an irresistible tactile satin finish before bisquing. Pieces are then placed in saggars with copper, salt and sawdust creating an atmosphere which leaves unique marks and colour on each and every pot. This aspect of the work is very exciting as the pot is handed over to the vagaries of the firing".
