About the Instructor
Orion Langdon has been working with his hands all his life. He has spent time as a lobsterman, shepherd, cook, filmmaker, artist and writer. Under the guidance of renowned master potter Felipe Ortega, he discovered a deep love and respect for micaceous clay. Orion makes hand coiled cooking vessels and cups from micaceous clay harvested in the wild, generous mountains of northern New Mexico. Orion‘s work is one of many iterations of the ever evolving, centuries old tradition of pottery making in this region. He strives to make work whose beauty does justice to her wild mountain origins and brings sustenance and vitality to people’s homes.
