As part of C-Art Martin, from Miles-Moore Ceramics took his raku firing demonstration on tour to the Florence Arts Centre in Egremont. Here he demonstrated how he has integrated the iconic “egremont red” iron ore into his latest body of work and raku fire pieces of it. Martin says that demonstrating Raku firing, a dramatic and elemental process that brings together, earth, fire, air and water on the site of a former mine feels right.
Martin is also hoping to give demonstrations at other sites from where he sources his materials. Martin has also collected materials such as Shap pink Granite, Coniston Slate and iron ore from Florence Mine at Egremont.
