Nate currently resides in New Albin, Iowa.

Nate and Hallie Evans are two young potters devoted to functional wood-fired ceramics. Wood-fire is an ancient, labor intensive process in which the interaction of ash, flame and pots determines much of the final look. The kiln must be monitored around the clock for several days. This differs from raku, a low-fire process done in a shorter time period. By contrast, wood-fire is a high temperature firing, resulting in durable pots for everyday kitchen use.
