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.
