Luce Artist Biography

Don Sprague’s artwork reflects his architectural studies at Washington State University. His training has led him to focus on the building process of each piece, which often involves joining together many wheel-thrown elements. Sprague’s lanterns, jars, pots, and dishes all display his interest in surface ornamentation and glazing.
