About Troy Bungart

I have a restless type of energy that always wants to be doing something, making something. I experiment a lot and like variety in my work. I’m interested in everything to do with ceramics: materials, methods and the community of makers. I respect how pottery captures and carries the story of itself. It speaks volumes.

I have three studios I use to create the product lines I sell: A Pottery Studio, a Woodshop for my Pottery Tools, and a Mixed Media studio for my handmade paintbrushes (which is actually a number of spread-out work stations).

My Woodshop is where I individually shape and contour handmade Pottery Tools from a selection of attractive hard woods.

My market niche on high quality pottery tools exists because I don’t treat them as a manufactured commodity. I inadvertently raised the bar well above utility because, though balanced and functional, my tools are as carefully considered, crafted and finished as my other artwork.
