Walter Awlson is well known for his figurative ceramic sculptures. His work is mainly sold from selected galleries throughout Britain, and he exhibits regularly at the Royal Glasgow Institute and the Royal Scottish Academy.
Over the years, Walter Awlson has overcome the technical problems of slip-casting a complex form that can then withstand the thermal shock of raku firing (where the piece is taken out of a hot kiln). This means that he can produce sculptures at a reasonable cost that have the richness and individuality of that type of firing. As an alternative, stoneware glazes are sometimes used. Fired at a higher temperature, these pieces, which have stone-like or bronze-like finishes, are harder and can be placed out of doors.
