Hello! Duncan Pottery is a new creative venture but an old passion, resulting from years of learning in pottery classes at: Santa Barbara City College, CA; University of Oregon, Eugene, OR; Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, PA (with the incredible Valda Cox); to recent and ongoing studies at Fireborn Studios, Pittsburgh, PA (under master potter, Dan Vito); and working and learning with the wonderful artists at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts.
Based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Duncan Pottery is a collection of unique, functional ceramic wares of stoneware or porcelain. The for-sale work is predominantly one-of-a-kind wheel-thrown forms, high-fired for durability, with lead free and food safe glazes. However, as everything is a process of experimentation, I’ve recently started to work with slab building and sculptural methods, soda and raku firing, and other techniques.
