John Mackenzie: Large Porcelain Bottle
Based in Penzance, John Mackenzie works with hand thrown clay, building his own
wood fired kiln and exploring the unique colours, surfaces and effects which can
only be achieved when working with this process.
John aims to explore and accentuate the protracted and extreme firing process by developing his own clays, glazes and slips which respond to the flame, ember and ash.
He includes locally found materials to further develop deep surface effects, texture and colour. John has become particularly interested in ancient Chinese glazes and how
these interact with the ‘fly ash’ and embers which are so prominent when firing an anagama kiln.
