Honorable Mention—Muddy Creek Pottery

Noah Hughey-Commers #82 – $500 Prize

Judge’s Comments: The first feeling I had was, of beautiful color these exquisite formed pieces all have.  With no explanation, I was wowed but then I learned of the process and the huge wood ash oven that takes days to fire and even longer to cool. I am in awe of the skill of perfect design simplicity resulting in the raw and simple beauty of the earthen color and shapes.  Museum quality pieces.
