Raku & Pit Fired Ceramics,
Mixed Media Painting
Brian's inspiration for his ceramics and his mixed media paintings relies heavily on found natural textures and atmospheric conditions, anything from an old sea washed rope on a sandy beach to rusting metal.
His ceramics are hand built using a variety of techniques from coiling to slab construction.
When leather hard the surfaces are distressed or painstakingly hand polished to suit the final firing.
The concluding beauty of the work is discovered within the unpredictable Raku and pit firing.
