Dan Barnett maintains his pottery studio in Gig Harbor, Washington. His work is primarily focused on creating functional and traditional forms for daily use. As a potter he is energized by the cycles of forming, glazing, and firing. These activities guarantee each day is new with another idea or refinement to explore.
Over the past several years he has developed a series of sculptures, bird baths and feeders intended to enhance time spent in our yards and gardens. It's Dan’s belief there is inherent pleasure in using and living with handmade objects.
Since the 1980's Dan has salt glazed his wares to take advantage of the subtle palette, unique surfaces, and durability that result from the process.
