Ray has been working with clay for over 30 years and exploring Alternative Firing techniques including Raku, Saggar, and Pit Firing for over 30 years.  Through patient experimentation and perseverance, he has learned to keep things simple and trust the firing to allow the pots to "decorate themselves" and produce subtle organic patterns on each piece.  Ray continues to explore different ways of varying aspects of the firings to produce increased pattern and color depth sometimes resulting from multiple firings from different techniques.  He enjoys teaching pottery for beginning or more advanced potters and regularly conducts Alternative Firing Workshops in the Mid-Atlantic area.
