Biography   Don Reitz


"Don Reitz: Clay, Fire, Salt, and Wood"
by Jody Clowes

Fearless improvisation and revival in American studio ceramics.

Don Reitz is recognized as one of the most important and influential ceramic artists of this century.  Trained at Alfred University in the early 1960s, Reitz has pursued a life-long investigation of salt and wood firing of his ceramic pieces in order to preserve the energy and freshness of his artistic marks and gestures.  Finding that the texture and unpredictability of salt-firing suited his work, Reitz almost single-handedly revived this neglected technique, and through long experimentation developed a range of colors and surface effects previously unknown in salt-firing.
