John Neely, professor of art at Utah State University, has contributed a body of physical work and knowledge that has had significant impact on the world of ceramic art. Neely specializes in tableware, primarily drinking and pouring vessels, which have been described as having a strong, contemporary feel. He is known as a master of atmospheric firing, a category that includes a range of firing techniques. He is especially committed to the technology of ceramics and creating a wealth of technical information, which he has disseminated over the more than 30 years of his mature career as a ceramic artist. His most significant contribution to the field of ceramics is indisputably his development of the “train-kiln,” a name that reflects its form as it resembles a traditional steam locomotive. This new wood-fired kiln is a modern design that achieves the aesthetic firing qualities of a traditional Japanese Anagama kiln, but which is easier to build, much easier to fire and much more environmentally friendly.
