Peter Callas

Peter Callas (b.1951) built the first Anagama Kiln in the United States in 1976. He introduced Peter Voulkos to wood firing shortly after. Callas and Voulkos worked together for 23 years, with Callas doing all the wood firings.

Callas lives and works in Belvidere, New Jersey and continues to work “ashen glazed surfaces to communicate the mysterious sensibilities of nature on fire.”
