Welcome!

DSC_0346Blazingstar Pottery is located among the hills of southeastern Minnesota.   I hope this blog will record my trials and experiments.  I’m interested in the way natural elements can react with heat and leave

DSC_0344Ime have a full-time job with a local garden center as a landscape designer.  I spend much of my time in the summer working, and much of the remaining time I spend with my family.  I have a lovely wife and two kids, age 4 and 1.  I try to make time in the summer for a few art shows, which I will post about on the website.

Since my job is strongly seasonal, I have a few months off in the winter to spend a lot of time working with clay.  Stop back often to see what I’m up to!
