Karl Compton

I took up pottery as a hobby almost 20 years ago, recently I was able to retire and take it up full time at my lakeside studio in Collinsville, Mississippi, where I throw stoneware and porcelain and fire both midrange electric and high fire gas reduction.  I am an artisan potter; I usually work in families, but each piece is unique.  I enjoy crafting the staples of the potter’s art, like mugs and bowls and vases, often with a twist, but I also make lots of figurative work, including pigs, chickens, bunnies, and whales that are meant to get a smile from the viewer.
