James Hake Ceramics

“Taking inspiration from Oriental ceramics, I have developed a palette of my own glazes.

These range from subtle Shinos, to rich, dark Tenmokus and Copper Reds. Glazes are applied quickly by dipping and pouring in different combinations, which fuse together in the heat of the kiln. I am always adapting and experimenting with glaze, searching for different colours and textures to complement ceramic form.

Currently I am investigating using local materials from quarries, clay seams and wood ashes in my glazes.”
