ABOUT Calvin Hiser
"From the beginning of my life I have fond memories of playing in the mud and creating things. My brother and I used to fill our time making art with found objects or drawing the things in nature around us. I went on to university to study business but along the way I took an “easy A” art class in ceramics. It was anything but easy and my instructor saw how much I loved it, so he offered me an assistant job in the ceramics department. It was there that I discovered my love for hand building and the wheel. From there I studied glaze theories and the techniques of firing a kiln properly.
After university I took time away from creating to travel the world, start businesses and have kids. I still have my kids around and they inspire me to be in touch with my inner child every day. This inner child has found his way back to the mud. I have recently built a home studio, as well returned to university so that I can take all of the ideas I have in my head and create again.
I feel I was put on this earth to create and clay has been the medium that I enjoy the most. I never feel better than when I am taking a lump of clay and creating a finished, functional vessel that someone can use or simply admire for its unique form or glaze. Even when I was away from “hands on” creating, I always had things in my mind that I simply needed to make. Now I am doing that again. I hope that my work resonates with others….and that it pulls them into my world for a moment."
