Carol Watkins CERAMICIST
Over the last 14 years, Carol has developed a love of alternative firing methods such as raku, naked raku and saggar. This involves working in quite often, very hot, and varied atmospheric conditions, using organic combustibles, oxides and sometimes her own glazes, giving at times, breathtaking results. The serendipity and unpredictability of these methods ensures no two pots are ever the same, with each piece telling its own story. With some surfaces glazed, and some unglazed, opening or unloading a kiln makes for great excitement.
