Gary Huntoon, a pre-med student at UCLA, took a ceramics class for fun and out of curiosity. Forty years later, Gary’s love is still clay.
He works in many styles and forms ranging from totems, raku fired forms, utilitarian and functional pieces plus larger, more sculptural forms. He works primarily in porcelain, although some elaborate sculptural pieces are made from stoneware clay.
His creative interests lead him in many directions, one being Ikebana vessels for Japanese flower arranging.
