Kevin Kilsby lives in Auckland and began making pottery in 1988. His pottry is created from his own original designs, made from very strong white clay, which is slipcast and highly fired. It will last a lifetime indoors and outdoors and will not craze or stain. The raw clay is hand painted with underglaze stains, bisque fired, clear glazed and given a final firing to achieve the high gloss. The straight tubular legs on the birds and animals are easily removable and are made from powdercoated aluminium so they will never rust or fade. The springi-legs, also easily removable, made from powdercoated steel and are recommended for indoor use.
