Legacy Emergent showcases the work of eight emerging wood-fire artists, who represent a progressive generation that is exploring ceramic forms, materials, and techniques in unique ways. These Oregon-based artists are invigorating the field with hybrid practices, including the use of locally sourced flex fuels like waste vegetable oil. A growing interest in sustainability and community is evident in their practice, as well. Examples include the sourcing of recycled and scrap wood from their local communities to fuel kilns, and group firings, involving anywhere from three to 30 people.
Cooper Jeppesen, Jesse Jones, Chris Pate, Joe Robinson, Jonathan Steele, Mandy Stigant, Hanna Traynham, Zachary Wollertp
