Taja

Taja

Slab built porcelain tableware with the original blue porcelain glaze. The clay is Royale Porcelain clay.
The blue colour of the glaze comes from very small percentage (less than 1%) of iron oxide in the clear glaze which consists of mainly Potash Feldspar, Quartz and Barium Carbonate. The pots are fired to cone 8 (1260C) in reduction condition.
The workshop is in Moretonhampstead which is situated on the north side of Dartmoor.

My work is handbuilt in earthenware, and has multiple layers of imagery built up through painted and monoprinted slips, linocut inks, glaze, decals and lustres. It’s nonfunctional.
Recent work explores themes of museum taxidermy displays. I'm currently based in Edinburgh.

Works in stoneware and porcelain. All work mid temperature stoneware and sometimes followed with a further lustre firing.
Production split between commissioned celebration pieces which include lettering and, recently, lots of large painted plates.

"My pots are thrown on a momentum wheel where they are manipulated and assembled wet. My focus is mainly on good form that reflects my individual vision. My pots are made for use and enjoyment in the preparation, serving, eating and storing of food and sometimes they can be simply for contemplation".
Work is stoneware, slip decorated and once-fired to 1300C in a wood/gas kiln where it is soda vapour glazed.
I regularly give lectures/demonstrations and workshops throughout the UK and abroad and have written the book, Soda Glazing (A & C Black)
I live in mid-Norfolk, and my studio is open to the public, but if coming from any distance it is advisable to telephone to ensure I am in my studio.
