Tony's work immortalizes women with character and attitude in Raku firing work of slender figures bountiful of beauty and elegance.
"My figures are hand built using a white clay with most of the final colour and decoration coming from smoke penetrating the surface in a controlled way. I also use small amounts of glaze and lustres. Each figure is fired in sections, often several times and assembled with pewter armbands and either coiled wire or silver collars of varying complexity. Sometimes I add silver leaf to the finished pieces. This is patinated with chemicals to compliment the smoked surface."
