Streets, raku, 2 .5" x 6" x 6"

Art Strong is a graduate of The University of Northern Iowa. He has taught art in Waterloo, Estherville, and Charles City, Iowa. He has attended numerous workshops on the art and process of raku, including Raku in the Rockies in Gunnison, CO. He says this about his work:

"I have been a teacher and a working artist all my adult life. As a ceramic potter, I find the raku process of finishing the clay exciting, dramatic, and unique. Its metallic glazes and smoky black clay bodies lend themselves well to my unconventional, non-utilitarian forms. My vases, covered jars, and abstract pots are thrown on the wheel and then altered, often with the addition of vivid sculptural features."
