Welcome to Stevie D Pottery.
I produce wheel-thrown functional stoneware pottery at my studio in Bonchurch on the Isle of Wight. Many of my pots are decorated with brushwork in rutile and iron over a base glaze. The rutile reacts with the underlying glaze to produce a range of attractive colours, sometimes quite intense, and this gives my work a distinguishing character of its own.
“Rutile is that unbelievably beautiful glaze additive that produces colors ranging from light and dark blue, to tan, gold, yellow, and even purple. It also produces a range of crystal formations. It seems to behave however it chooses, depending on the glaze base and the firing conditions.“
