Ausable Pottery was created in 1977 after I received my BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute. My dream was to be a studio potter in the beautiful Adirondacks, where I built a big kerosene-fired kiln and a very small studio space. Then I decided to go to graduate school at University of Colorado, married and started a family, and Ausable Pottery became a dormant entity.
After years of living in Massachusetts, raising two girls with my wife Jill, and making and selling pots as Pierce Avenue Clay, my wife and I have returned to the Adirondacks and I've decided to resurrect the Ausable Pottery. The studio and kiln are long-gone, but I've built a new gas kiln from some of the original bricks, and converted a garage into a new, more comfortable studio space.
I'm not sure yet exactly WHAT I'm going to do in that studio!
As I figure it out, I will update this site and with luck some interesting things will show up here! Thanks for visiting...
