Mike is a West Michigan gem. He uses our lakeshore and waterways as inspiration for his work. An avid kayaker, he often incorporates unusual driftwood into his pieces. These ceramic forms are uniquely different, a reflection of the Great Lakes, evoking the beauty of Michigan’s natural surroundings.
Several ceramic techniques can be seen in his work. He uses a potters wheel to create many of his vessels and hand-builds others. His creative use of the wood ash, glazes, and wood firing techniques offer you many choices from the same artist. His inspiration is Asian but his interpretation is all Mike Taylor. Mike’s work can be used everyday or enhance your space purely as art.
