"My preferred shapes and forms are classical inspired by ancient, islamic and asian arts and crafts. My clay is the very sandy red clay from the South of Denmark. I mix and clean it myself and store it for more than a year before I use it. In my large trays and bowls I add stoneware clay. I throw all my pieces on the wheel, after which I pull or draw lobes, make facets, cut, shape and/or stamp bands. I give most pieces a slip - often several layers. I'm very fascinated by glazes and the hues derived from the slips and the ash and clay glazes. I use ash and clay glazes and the hues are derived from the slips : many types of different ashes like from beechwood, straw, oak yield different hues and colors. I much prefer light blue and green, turquoise colors. I fire my electrical kiln to around 1210° C until the clay crystallizes and melts body and glaze into one body. Reduction is quite heavy all the way to maximum temperature, which makes the clay very dark. Reduction is done with resinous wood."
