Allen K Littlefield

Born on October 11, 1940, the Allen K Littlefield graduated in 1967 from Wilkes College with a BA in Art Education. Allen hand builds each piece individually out of white stoneware clay. The work is then bisque-fired in an electric kiln. The final step in firing involves an ancient technique called pit firing. This is done outdoors and involves wrapping or positioning each piece with various materials including cardboard and newspaper.

After the pit firing Allen washes each piece thoroughly and lets it dry before applying other colors or attaching them to backgrounds. Since the work is porous it is not recommended for outdoor use in climates where temperatures dip near or below freezing.
