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.

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. Here are some of my more recent stories.

The Half Silvered mirror, losing his wallet was just the start of his problem...

Having had a number of careers (see here if you are really interested) I am now a full time Ceramafacturer and part time author. 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. I am a member of Anglian Potters.

The Battling Barrington's story excerpt
The Battling Barringtons

The Barringtons are a happy and contented family in Cambridge. But life is about to give them their very own Annus Horribilis, which really should translate more literally than it does!

The Half Silvered mirror, losing his wallet was just the start of his problem...

The State plans everything, so when the number of deaths does not meet the plan expectations, somebody needs to do something.

The Druids raised a beast of evil to

defeat the Romans. Their plan failed, but the beast lives on, seeking to scour the world. And who knows who will be caught in the gale?
