While traveling in the Northwest United States, I had the pleasure of meeting Loren Lukens at his studio. It is located in Seattle Washington. He has a great set up with a gallery out front, many work tables, spray booth, kilns, pottery wheels, and more. Yes, I had a bit of studio envy. Loren was raised in the Midwest in a farming family. Growing up in this type of environment, sets you up for the physical life of a potter. I found his bowls and decoration elegant. If you get the opportunity to visit Seattle, give Loren a call to visit his studio. You won’t be sorry.
