Ray R. Porter, Handcrafted Pottery

Ceramics and Pottery

Ray was introduced to pottery during college in the 70’ spending all free time in the ceramics studio. After graduation he worked for a few years with a studio potter but was sidetracked with a part time job as a caterer. This diversion became a career in the food service industry lasting nearly 40 years. Now, after a long hiatus he has returned to his original passion with clay. Though primarily focused on throwing functional wares at the moment, hand-building is a keen interest also. Current work is single-fired at mid-range temperatures in an electric kiln.
