Oriel Wrecsam - Maker in Focus

Daniel Boyle


Daniel Boyle has lived and worked in Wales for the past 18 years since graduating in studio ceramics from Harrow College of Art, London in 1991.

He makes one-off functional salt glazed stoneware works, to hold and interact with – things to be used and enjoyed.

Every part of the making process contributes to the work produced, the throwing and turning marks, the impressed patterns and the fluid textured glazes.

He fires using wood and gas-fired salt kilns to 1300° with all their variations and challenges.

The slips and ashes used highlight where the flame has touched the pots causing running and movement - producing glazes reflecting landscapes and creating a glaze to be explored beyond their surface.
