Ian Hazard-Bill makes his ceramic work on the wheel and with a unique slab-building technique. The one-of-a-kind glazes are a result of firing his pieces in wood or salt/soda kilns. Born and raised in Marin County, Ian started working in clay in high school and earned a B.A. in Ceramics and Community-based Sustainability from Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. Various apprenticeships, artist in residency programs and teaching workshops followed. He is currently the Ceramics Program Coordinator at the Mendocino Art Center.
