The essentials

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.

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. 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.

Hunting a murderer is always tough, but when your colleagues begin to suspect you are the killer, things can only get worse. Detective Ian Thompson knows the only way to prove his innocence is to reveal long-hidden secrets, which could destroy his career even before it has begun.

For failed writer Edgar Johnson, it is a job to die for. Which, since his collaborators aren't (strictly speaking) alive, seems appropriate. However, it soon becomes apparent there is a story he cannot write, and his sanity, and his very soul, are at risk.
