"The quintessential thing about our work is the atmospheric effects of Iron in oxygen reduction at high temperature. Many layers of oxides, give the brushwork a painterly depth as oxides melt into the glaze on the very edge of melting down. Botanical imagery is painted in a gestural manner likened to impressionism, so that the feeling of light and color and movement comes alive on the surface." David & Susan Butterfield
