Siegele and Haley

Earthfire Branch

Susy Siegele and Mike Haley make up Buzzard Mt. Pottery, AKA Siegele and Haley. Their onetime apprentice is Karen Branch of Earthfire Branch. All make their homes in Arkansas and make similar work - but each with their own distinctive spin. The porcelain clay is colored with oxides and then assembled into loaves of intricate designs. The loaves, when sliced, reveal the imagery within. The fun part is the scale. A large piece can be sliced off, then the loaf reduced. The next slice will be just as detailed, but smaller. Pretty neat.
