Travel grant for a print workshop in Hungary.

I work in stoneware and porcelain; have done a lot of functional ware- mortars, breadboxes, tile tables, kitchen tops, spice shelves etc.

Now I'm concentrating on less useful things where print and foto play a part. I've done clay books - books on ceramics, cook books, short stories, books about other potters. The book idea enabled me to express myself in words and images without having to face the disappointment of rejected manuscripts from a publisher. Now the books are growing, becoming book stands, globe books, buoy books, rocking books, portals, and who knows what...

I work in several techniques as far as text and image go. I have used traditional silkscreening, though very seldom now. I work with printers' letters and with print plates with raised letters, produced photographically and pressed into the wet clay. Now, since I installed a computer some years ago I've been producing text and images in Photo Shop and printing onto decal paper which can be transferred to raw or bisque ware and high-fired.
