Kirk Lyttle

Kirk Lyttle works out of his basement studio in St. Paul, Minnesota. He wood fires his pots alongside Linda Christianson and Jil Franke in Christianson’s double-chambered Bourry box kiln. In addition to his ceramics practice, Lyttle is an illustrator and graphic artist for the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Of his work, Lyttle says, “I’d like my pots to appear as though they were knocked off on a whim; the drawings have been done for my personal amusement. If some of them have acquired an aura that transcends these inauspicious beginnings, I’d like it if this were attributed to the mysterious atmosphere of the wood-fired kiln.”
