Justin Lambert received his BFA from Florida Atlantic University, and his MFA from Indiana University. Justin has spent the last 16 years firing utilitarian pottery in wood burning kilns. His understanding of wood burning kilns allows him to achieve consistent, dramatic surfaces from many different designs. Investigations into reduction cooling in the teardrop anagama adds dramatic decoration to the subtle curves in his pots. In addition to running the studio, Live Oak Pottery, Justin chairs the ceramics department at the Lighthouse ArtCenter, and travels for firing workshops. He enjoys spending time with his wife Andrea, and their dogs Rusty and Daisy.
Below are pictures of his work from Ashfest firings.
