Louis Kittleson

‘El Presidente’ of Ceramics New Zealand and based in Napier Louis continues his practice as established at Driving Creek in the nineties. He holds a place in the spectrum of New Zealand craft.  Many of the pieces were made for the occasion of this show and some had been saved for a special occasion...  All woodfired, mainly natural glazes- ‘Crap from the garden’. Fired for inbteween fourty-eight and ninety-six hours.  With temperatures as high as 1300, the clay vitrifies/turns glass-like leaving them watertight and thus functional.
