Firing is a form of alchemy. Having spent many hours sculpting metal forms, riveting them and then many more painstakingly painting with enamel, the sculpture is then subjected to intense heat in a kiln for just a few minutes. Hours of slow, meditative work culminate in an unpredictable process which dictates the outcome.
