Minnesota potter Mitch Iburg begins his work by going through local geological publications, survey maps, mining databases, and walking the terrain from where he acquires his materials for creating his work. He gathers, tests, and prepares the clay all year around, which is at the heart of his work. Maintaining this commitment limits how much can be produced, but Mitch believes that it is crucial to know the origins and history of these resources to keep a strong connection to the natural environment that they came from.
