Byron Temple was an American ceramicist whose functional hand-assembled, wood-fired, and salt-glazed pots earned international recognition. Temple was born in Centerville, Indiana in 1933 and studied at Ball State University, the Brooklyn Museum Art School, and the Art Institute of Chicago. Temple described his work as "sleek and slim" with "simple lines" and "marks left exposed," which he considered "a combination of Bauhaus and Japan." For many years, Temple was an apprentice with Bernard Leach at St. Ives Pottery in Cornwall, England. Temple’s work is in the collection of the Smithsonian Museum of American art and was featured in the New York Times in 1982.
