Coleton Lunt grew up in the geologic mecca of southern Utah and his aesthetic certainly reflects it. He attained his BFA from Northern Arizona University where he became known for atmospheric fired pottery. He was a resident artist at Pottery Northwest in Seattle and attained his MFA from the University of Notre Dame. After a decade of atmospheric firing, he is experimenting with electric kilns as a resident at Belger Crane Yard Studios. He makes pottery and sculpture and finds joy dancing the line between the two.
