Biography   James J. 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. &   ...  Displaying 750 of 1561 characters.
