Bob Coyle’s Page

I Have been working with clay for about 15 years. I like to do both hand building and wheel throwing. I also enjoy working with wood and metal. I try to come up with ideas that will allow me to combine these elements. I have collaborated with my wife and even incorporated her weaving into some of my…oops… OUR sculptures. You can see them  on her web page.

My background is chemistry so I formulate my own glazes and have fine tuned an old technique called “Electroforming” to plate some of my work with a very heavy copper plate. This plate can then be patinated to give a variety of colors and effects much like a bronze sculpture. In often incorporate gemstones and other objects into my pieces.

My ceramic pieces are fired to around 2100 deg F ( cone 5-6) in an electric kiln.  If you would like information on any of the glazes or techniques feel free to contact me.

90% of the electricity to fire the kiln comes from wind power.  

Browse the pictures below to see some of the pieces I have come up with
