Julian has been working with clay for over 30 years. After training in Scotland and Wales, he moved to Ireland in 1995 and established a workshop in Kinsale, concentrating on raku firing.
Raku is a technique where the work is rapidly fired and then removed from the kiln while still glowing red-hot. The piece is then placed in a container with combustible materials, creating striking colours using metallic oxides. The charm of Raku lies in its use of primitive materials, which can nevertheless produce highly sophisticated results.
