David Allnatt

All of my work is hand built with red earthenware clays and fired up to 1160 degrees centigrade. Using a combination of glaze formulas and firing temperatures I build up textural surfaces in a range of rich colours. The recent forms have developed through a study of human and animal gestures.Influences
