Artist bio: Nathan Falter co-owns Springfield Pottery, a community clay center and fine craft gallery, with his wife Jennifer. He earned his BFA in ceramics and drawing from Missouri State University, an MFA in sculpture and ceramics from the University of Delaware, and is currently an adjunct professor in the Department of Art at Missouri State University. In 2006, Nathan went on to establish the Springfield Claymobile program to provide a dynamic ceramic educational outreach program to serve children and communities in the Southwest Missouri area. Nathan’s work can be found in several galleries and private collections both regionally and internationally. Nathan is both a potter and sculptor who enjoys making both functional pots and large sculptural pieces. Nathan tries to balance the sculptural potential of the objects with the requirements for everyday use. His work appears in The Ceramic Design Book (Lark Press, 1998), and in 500 Pitchers (Lark Press, 2006).Opening Springfield Pottery in 1998 and providing a source of quality ceramic education and residency opportunities for the community has been the realization of a dream come true.
