Wayne Higby, head of the ceramics department at Alfred University in Alfred, New York, is one of America’s preeminent ceramists. His works are small-scale abstract landscapes, incorporating colors and forms derived from the natural world. Influenced by the Japanese ceramic tradition, Higby uses a raku firing technique wherein glazed pieces are removed from the kiln while still hot and placed to cool in combustible materials like leaves or straw. This typically results in gray or black areas, lustrous colors, and a crackled surface. Turquoise Bay Winter is one of a series of “landscape bowls” that the artist created in the 1980s and 1990s.
