I’m William K. Turner and I have produced raku fired ceramics for over 20 years. My work is sold in Galleries throughout the United States through my company, Raku Art Inc.. The majority of my work is slip cast from unique molds. I feel the piece (or shape) is the canvas for my raku which is painted by fire.
Tony has had his hands in clay for longer than he would like to say. His father was a brick and flowerpot maker in the old European tradition. Living and working in the small rural community of Enderby situated in the beautiful Okanagan valley of British Columbia, Canada , Tony carries on the tradition.
started making pottery 40 years ago and I’ve been earning my living as a potter for the past 34 years. The work that I make is mostly functional stoneware, but I don’t have a set line of work that is made on a production basis. I prefer to let forms and surfaces develop and evolve from firing to firing. I hope you’ll find some interesting images and informative text.

The focus of my work is inspired by ancient Jomon pottery. An important element is the quality of a pot’s surface, which for me, is best achieved in the process of wood firing and salt glazing.
In the early 1990’s I built a variety of kilns at the studio. This provided the opportunity to offer summer workshops at our pottery. From 1993 until 2006, potters from around the world came to share a common interest in clay.

My desire is to have my work find a use in the everyday life of the user. I use simple forms, which I make by slip-casting, I then apply my graphic designs so that they work with the forms in a harmonious collaboration. When painting the surfaces of the work,either by direct handpainting or a process of layering with wax- resist I find that the shapes dictate how the pattern moves on a piece. I find this most exicting because each piece has its own way of interpreting what is applied
I started making masks a few years ago as a result of my fascination with masks as ritual objects. This interest continues to grow and evolve as time goes on. The masks have become (for me) a commentary on life and the human condition.

Birds dislike shiny, slick surfaces because of landing and maneuvering problems, so, for the birds, we resist the urge to glaze our product except for occasional accents. This makes working, durable, earthtone ‘yard-art’ that can be used by birds and enjoyed by you for years to come.

Charlie and Linda Riggs work together to create a variety of decorative types of pottery. Most of their work is thrown by Charlie who takes time to make a very smooth surface that will later be polished with terra sigillata. These pots are then finished with one of the smoke fired techniques that results in a shiny unglazed surface brilliant with the colors of saggar firing, the bold blacks and whites of naked raku or the subtle marks of horsehair and ferric chloride.

Ben Owen III is a potter from Seagrove, North Carolina. His forefathers came to North Carolina from England as early as 1756 to ply their craft and furnish storage jars and other utilitarian wares for the early settlers. Ben’s grandfather, master potter Ben Owen, Sr., admired early oriental pottery displayed in museums and collections and translated those works into his own style of pottery. He worked as a potter at Jugtown Pottery in the early to mid 1900’s. Ben the III’s work was influenced by his grandfather’s style at an early age. He studied pottery from 1977 to 1983 as an apprentice with his grandfather and, later, at East Carolina University from 1989 to 1993. Like his grandfather, Ben III’s pottery reflects a foundation of traditional designs as well as oriental translations.
