Tim is known internationally for his distinctive raku ceramics. He makes individual work-black and white with linear decoration or burnished muted coloured slips. The pieces are usually thrown, although some work is handbuilt. During this exciting course, for the first two days we will concentrate on clay work, making finishing, burnishing using porcelain slip and terra sigillata. The second half of the workshop will concentrate on glazing, decorating and firing techniques with particular emphasis on using the resist slip method (often known as naked raku).
