Biography James Nyeste
James Nyeste first became interested in redware figural pottery after visiting the Henry Ford Museum and seeing the John Bell lion figure. In 1980, Nyeste was given some red clay by his friend Lester Breininger and told to " go make some clay animals".
Nyeste's early works were similar to the old antique figures; however, many of his later pieces were of his own style and form. His glazes followed in both the traditional Pennsylvania reds and orange and in the Shenandoah Valley yellow, brown and green colors.
His clay animal figures have appeared in several magazines including: Americana, Colonial Homes, Mid Atlantic Monthly, Early American Life and Country Home. &
