John Dix "Ashtray"
Materials: Clay, natural glaze
Process: Anagama Fired
Dimensions: 6" x 6" x 2"
"This piece was made out of reclaimed and unfiltered wild clay. It’s unthrowable but ideal for large chunky forms. Basically carved out of a block of clay, then fired in the firebox for maximum contact with ash and embers."
John Dix, Kobe City, Japan
John Dix has spent the last 30 of his 40 years with clay primarily in Japan. This has led to works that show a strong Japanese influence but still retain elements of his early training in the West. After graduating from Albion College in Michigan, John embarked on an apprenticeship under master potter Peter Johnson. The skills he learned there enabled him to travel and work with potters in Greece and Israel before arriving in Japan in 1989. He worked in Bizen and Shigaraki before building a kiln and studio in the Tanba area. John fires his anagama kiln two or three times a year. He regularly exhibits in Japan and abroad. John is also a popular teacher who hosts workshops at his studio in Japan and travels abroad every year to teach.
