Mike Fuller -  La Grange, Texas

While enlisted in the Army and trained as an Occupational Therapy Specialist, Mike had the opportunity to explore the process of creating objects with clay and share what he learned with others. This experience lead to a lifetime of using clay as his medium to create art. The natural world repeats its self all around us. Mike's focus of interest is in biological forms as well as the anthropomorphic forms found in Nature, including our own human forms.

In Mike's own words:  "The firing method I prefer is Raku. Raku was developed in Japan to be used to create tea bowls for their tea ceremonies using a wood firing method. In the 1950s-1960s, ceramist Paul Soldner and colleagues developed a method using gas to fire ceramics in outdoor kilns. This method brings the clay up to a high temperature in order to melt the glazes that have been applied. The pieces are quickly removed from the kiln while red hot and placed in a metal container filled with combustible material. The container is quickly covered to extinguish the fire and deplete the oxygen. The compounds within the glaze recipes react to the lack of oxygen which in turn creates a variety of metallic finishes. This does not follow the traditional Raku practice in Japan. The Western process can give a great variety of colors and surface effects."
