Biography  
Howard Kottler


From Seattle, Washington, his earthenware sculpture was influenced by Noritake china, an imported Japanese Art Deco porcelain popular in the U.S. in the 1920s and 30s. He combined this interest with contemporary art movements including Pop Art and Surrealism, and many of his works suggest profiles of figures and self-portraits. A special exhibit of his sculpture was held fall, 1998 at Shaw Guido Gallery in Pontiac, Michigan.

He was born and raised in the Midwest and then spent 25 years teaching at the University of Washington in Seattle. One of his students was the famous ceramist, Micheal Lucero.
