- About us
Ivan Lambert Samuels’ focus in clay is to create functional work on the pottery wheel. For 15 years, he has been committed to the medium of clay and ceramics. Samuels studied pottery in Boston, MA at the Mudflat Clay School. He continues to teach pottery classes and workshops to adults and youth populations in clay studios in New York City. He uses various clay bodies to create pottery but enjoys using brown stoneware the most. He loves the sandy grog in the brown stoneware that gives an earthy ceramic finish once kiln fired. Functional pottery has inspired art, crafts, and customs in civilizations around the globe. His love for nature and the ocean inspires some of the earth tones and bright glazes he uses in his functional pottery work.
