36" Hand thrown North Carolina Wild Clay Floor Pillar
Wild Clay is a term used to describe clay that is dug from the ground and used as is. This is opposed to commercial clays which are formulated using ingredients that are mined individually and combined in specific and consistent recipes. As a wild clay ceramic artist, I dig all of my clay myself and process it only so much as to remove large rocks, bugs, and organic materials with a sieve. Then I experiment with the clay, learn it's specific properties and characteristics, and create work that relates to the unique properties of the clay. I leave these pieces unglazed and use the atmosphere inside the kiln the pieces are fired in to give each one a unique and authentically wild surface. In this line of work I explore the traditional side of ceramic art. This line represents my desire for simplicity, sustainability, and working in collaboration with the natural world.

All of my work is wheel thrown or hand built by me in my studio using either commercial stoneware clay I purchase from a distributor or using clay I dig and process myself! My work is finished in glazes of my own recipe mixed in my studio. All of my work is fired, finished, and shipped by me as well. If you have any questions about my process, whether you are a customer or fellow potter looking to swap tips, please ask!
