al green pottery websitePottery by Albert Green

For more than fifty years until his death in 1994, Albert Green produced works of genius that continue to influence the ceramic world today. Through years of experimentation and study, Albert was able to teach himself the intricacies of clay and glazes.  Simple utilitarian forms – the bowl, the bottle, the plate – became Albert’s canvases, allowing him to concentrate on the interplay of color and design which graces the surface of every piece.
