John Neely has taught ceramics for 28 years, and has exhibited widely in the United
States, New Zealand, China, Korea, Australia, Japan and Yugoslavia. Richard Zakin
writes in Ceramics: Ways of Creation that "it is not easy to say whether John is essentially
a utilitarian potter, a potter whose work attests to his immersion in Japanese culture
and ceramics, a technical ceramist, or an inventive ceramist. He balances all of these
characteristics in his work."

"...I think of utility as a kind of continuum, with the generic or universal idea of 
containment at one end, and specific, focused, single purpose tools at the other. The
teapot, a 'machine' for brewing and serving tea, would be found at the specific end, but it
also serves as a vehicle for my explorations into the materials and processes of ceramics.
My approach lies somewhere between that of the alchemist and that of the scientist;
discovery rather than expression, is my primary motivation." - John Neely
