Geoff Thiel

Ceramicist

In the past year I have been working with various forms of raku (smoke) firing, which include naked raku, crackle glaze raku and horsehair raku. The pieces are wheel thrown with highly burnished slip and terra sigillata surfaces. Ceramics has been my hobby since 2004 and grew into a full time occupation in 2017 when I retired from my engineering career and started work in my own studio. A lot of my decoration design work is done on a computer and applied to the pottery using computer-cut paper and vinyl stencils.

See the artist's SAOS Member web page for more.

Geoff Thiel welcomes visitors all year round by appointment.
