About Third Pottery
Third Pottery is indeed the third pottery of both Nan Coffin
and Richard Burkett. Richard's first pottery, the Wild Rose
Pottery, was in Greencastle, Indiana, and soon was moved to
a farm near Bainbridge, Indiana. Nan had potteries in both Whitestown,
Indiana and for many years in Paoli, Indiana, where she ran
her Log Creek Pottery. Nan continues to be a full-time studio
potter making functional porcelain and stoneware items.
Richard teaches ceramics at San Diego State University and
makes pots and sculpture. He also runs the CeramicsWeb
site and is the author of HyperGlaze,
and the co-author of "Ceramics: A Potter's Handbook"
6th edition, as well as books on porcelain artists and potters in the Ecuadorian Amazon basin. He also plays bluegrass music in his spare time with his band Gone Tomorrow and other local groups.
