Chris Staley is known as a potter who makes functional work that is wheel-thrown or hand-built or built using a combination of methods.

Firing techniques vary but are usually high fire (2,350˚ Fahrenheit). Staley’s work emphasizes the production of pots and the human interaction with them. He incorporates a variety of vessel forms with conceptual surface imagery and techniques. Glazes enhance the sculptural perception of his pots while graphic techniques applied by brush, transfers or clay elements which enhance conceptual content. Types of clay bodies and glazes vary depending on the intended pot.

In addition to being a potter, Staley is a dedicated teacher, researcher, writer and advocate for the ceramic arts.
