Geoffrey Crispin has been wood firing for 50 years, starting at the University of NSW in 1969.
Making his studio at Whiteman Creek, in the 70’s Crispin started out in production work – raw glazed, wood fired thrown stoneware pots made from local raw materials. This progression continued through an exploration of porcelain made from local raw materials, raw fired and applied raw ash.
Crispin’s work still to this day reflects a pre-occupation with exploring and developing local raw materials wherever possible, enhancing their inherent qualities when wood fired. He has developed his own porcelain and stoneware specifically formulated to be fired with wood in a two chambered Bourrie box style kiln.
