Jonathan Chiswell Jones specialises in making reduction fired lustre. Only a handful of potters worldwide practise this branch of the potter’s art, using a centuries-old Middle Eastern technique to make lustreware. Mixing clay and water with silver or copper, and painting this on the glazed pot. When fired in a kiln starved of oxygen, the metal combines with the glaze in a minutely thin layer, which reflects light.
Each numbered and signed piece has details of what was done to create it recorded and stored in the pottery.
