“My studies of ceramics over the years have helped me develop techniques that create strikingly beautiful colours, textures and intense patterns. The simplistic ceramic forms I have chosen serve as a canvas for the naturally created images they carry." All of Dawn's work is bisque fired and then smoke/saggar fired. She has chosen not to rely on the usual ceramic slips, glazes and chemical treatments. Instead, Dawn incorporate natural materials in to the firing process, resulting in unique and unusual designs. "I also create my own types of 'glazes' in which my pieces are dipped and soaked. These are produced by, combining various materials and liquids."
