Alan Willoughby lives and makes pots in southern New Jersey where he shares a home, studio and wood kiln with his wife, Linda Shusterman. Alan enjoys creating work using a variety of clays, including a stoneware clay, porcelain and most recently, a wild clay of southern New Jersey which he prospects and prepares for use. His work is made on a potters wheel and includes hand built and press molded additions. The work is decorated with terra sigillatas, slips and glazes and is fired in a Noborigama wood kiln to 2380 degrees Fahrenheit. The work is food safe and dishwasher safe.
Alan has an MFA in Ceramics from Clemson University and has been awarded two Artists Fellowships by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. His work and writings have been featured in Ceramics Monthly, Ceramics Art & Perception, Ceramics Technical and Studio Potter.
