Tony Clennell is a second generation potter who earned his M.F.A. from Utah State University.  He has since taught workshops in Canada, USA, Japan, China, Korea and Italy, and is a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts.  His wood-fired pottery is distinguished by its gestural handling of clay outside the conventional bounds of functional ware.  He has participated in numerous group and solo shows, and exhibited his work in museums and collections in North America, Europe and Asia.  He has written more than 55 articles for ceramic journals and is the author of the book “Stuck in the Mud”.  He is also the author of the Smokie Clennell BlogSpot which won Best Pottery Blog for 2015. 

 “I don’t make pots for everyone! I make them for those who like the unusual. Those who like the marks of the maker, the fire and those who are not interested in sameness.”
