Shane Porter

"I am a studio potter working in a variety of ceramic techniques. "

These deceptively simple handcrafted ornaments are all one of a kind. Each piece is individually thrown on the wheel before being glazed and fired using the raku technique.

Raku is a firing process unlike any other. During a firing, the artist removes each piece from a red-hot kiln and transfers it to a combustion chamber. This is where the magic really happens! With the ornament's temperature around 1600-1900 degrees, the combustion chamber flares up on contact and "paints" the piece with one-of-a-kind patterns of color.

Shane Porter first started working in clay during the summer of 2001 and quickly became obsessed with the medium. He worked with and for a variety of different ceramic artists, learning a wide variety of techniques and processes along the way. This culminated in a trip to China in 2005, during which he traveled to Jingdezhen, Yixing, and the Southern regions of China, visiting studios and working with local materials.
