Description: Rob makes decorative pots, including bowls, urns, flared vases, pomanders, lidded boxes and elaborately decorated teapots. He works mainly in raku, a process during which his hand-thrown pots are removed from the red-hot kiln with tongs when the glaze has melted and then plunged immediately into sawdust. The smoke from the burning sawdust produces the characteristic blackening of the pots and the lustre and crazing of the glazes.
