Clay Work
by
Chris Henley
 



Welcome to the pottery website of Chris Henley. I developed this site to share my work and ideas with others who also have a passion for creating things from clay. The signature shown above is my trademark. I live and work in Encinitas, California.

My clay work is done primarily on the wheel, but I explore other techniques as well. When firing, I typically use a gas fueled kiln, and favor ash and clay glazes fired to cone 10. I do explore other forming techniques, glaze materials, and firing ranges. As this page develops, I will be adding links to other pottery sites along with information and updated photos of my  work.
