"Owen Rye is an Australian Woodfire Potter who has been studying, practicing, teaching and writing about ceramic art for 40 years. He is a well-known leader in the woodfire movement in Australia and overseas, and his interest in all things involving clay and fire has made him a valued teacher across the broad spectrum of ceramics.  Rye has been described as 'an adventurer in the world of anagama' 2 and 'a seasoned risk-taker'. 3 Norman Creighton once humorously noted Rye was reputedly, but mistakenly, 'an old, white-haired and doddery scientist.'4 These descriptions serve to emphasise Rye's curiosity, his playful yet seriously inquiring approach to materials and process and his insistence on finding an individual way within or beyond ceramic tradition."- an excerpt from an essay by Gail Nichols on Owen Rye.
