the boy behind the glass screen

Having had a number of careers (see here if you are really interested) I am now a full time Ceramafacturer and Author. I split my time between writing and making.
 
My ceramics work has a very wide range of styles and ideas, with a common thread. The work will use a mould of some sort, typically slip casting, and the form or mould will use 3D printing within the process. This focus is my attempt to understand what is possible using 3D printing in craft ceramics, where I think the opportunities are very exciting.  I look to bring the precision of manufacturing to the craft tradition of ceramics, Ceramafacturing.

My writing is equally eclectic. I have been working at it for ten years now, and have completed novels in super-natural, comic, speculative and thriller genres. My present work, see projects, is a comic novel. 
 
My first published novel, The Boy behind the Glass Screen,  is due to be released towards the end of April.

Ceramafacturing

Ceramafacturing is the process I use to create 3D computer models, print them and use those models to cast ceramic models. I love the scope it provides for developing new forms but in a way that has a great deal of control over the modelling process.

I have had to learn, computer modelling, 3D printing, mould making, slip casting, glazing, and other decorating techniques, but with plenty of time on my hands (!) that's been part of the fun.

Background
3D resources, videos, files and much more

Writing

If there were more hours in the day, I would fill them with more writing. But there isn't, so I do as much as I can. 

You can see some of my flash fiction - here, and my completed novel summary here.
