Iron, MN

Nathan Bray received his BFA in ceramics from Bemidji State University in 2009. He has taught in multiple facilities, including the Carbondale Clay Center and Bemidji State University. Bray says that, to him, teaching means to drive process in his personal practice. He finds inspiration for his work in the plasticity of clay and in his passion for electricity, flowers, music, graphic art, and pop art. He uses a variety of colored slips and glazes to activate the surfaces of his terracotta pottery. Bray describes his method of making as stream of consciousness, driven by the continuous flow of new techniques and ideas.
