Daniel Boyle makes salt-glazed wood fired ceramics in his studio in West Wales. His pieces are contemporary, functional, wheel-based forms; items to be used and enjoyed. I combine traditional and modern ways of working, firing in a 75 cubic foot catenary arched kiln with wood to 1300o Centigrade. These firings produce many original surfaces and colours. His aim is to create functional works that are individual and original in design and execution.
