“I’m attracted to the idea of practice--attentive repetition toward something small as a way to understand something universal.”

Ceramic artist Sequoia Miller avers that people don't actually purchase pots--“they buy the exploration, of which the pot is an artifact.” He says his work as a potter is to make pots and to continue the exploration of what pottery is.

Miller began the study of ceramic art in 1993. His education as a potter unfolded during a series of workshops at Penland, Haystack, and other Craft Schools during the mid 1990’s. In 1995, Miller relocated to the Pacific Northwest and set up a pottery shop in an abandoned boat shack. Within three years, he became a full-time potter. Today, Miller exhibits and sells his work nationally. He teaches pottery workshops on a regular basis..

His selected exhibitions and awards include the Smithsonian Craft Show, Washington, DC, 2006; “Teapots: Universal Adoration,” Pewabic Pottery, Detroit, MI, 2006; Philadelphia Art Museum Show, Philadelphia, PA, 2005; “Made in Clay,” Greenwich House Pottery, New York, NY, 2005; “Tea For Two,” Kentucky Museum of Arts & Design, Louisville, KY, 2004; June Fitzpatrick Gallery (one person show), Portland, ME, 2003.
