Ken Sedberry

I received my M.F.A. from the Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, R.I., in 1977. I accepted a Residency at The Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Montana where I studied and taught until 1979. Returning to the East Coast, I taught at The Catholic University of America until 1981.

My family and I moved to North Carolina where I designed and built my first studio and wood fired kiln. For 27 years, I lived and worked in the small mountain community of Loafer’s Glory. In 2008, I designed our current home and studio space along the Toe River in Burnsville, NC.

I am a member of the Southern Highlands Handicrafts Guild and Piedmont Craftsmen.

New work is evolving from this change so check back once in a while for updated works. All pottery made in his studio is made by hand employing a combination of wheel throwing and hand-building. All of the glazes used are formulas developed and altered through the years and come from a multitude of sources.  He uses copper greens, copper reds, cobalt blues, rutile blues, tenmoku, and a variety of other earth-tones.  Because each piece is handmade, there will be slight variations in the color and the finish of the glaze. That is the beauty of
