Working with a blend of porcelain and white stoneware, Glenn generally begins the creative process by making the forms on the potters' wheel and then alters and combines pieces. Glenn alters his forms by paddling, piercing, beading, and carving - the finished pieces generally have hints of nature: leaves, gourds, and flowers. The patterns created with the beading found on many of his pieces are influenced in part by his exposure to the Amish community as a child where he learned to crochet and appreciate the fine stitching patterns found in the Amish quilts.
Keith Herbrand Potter and Business Manager
While Keith's primary function was managing the business aspects of Pottery Boys Clay Studios, he has become a major contributor to the productions side. Keith has also taken on mixing glazes, preparing bisque for glazing, loading kilns, and in addition to his thrown pieces, creates functional slab pieces. Keith says, "My business degree and my experience in retail management keeps us on track business-wise but I am also enjoying the process of making - learning more each day about the creative aspects of our business and continuing to hone my throwing skills."
