Burt Cohen

Originating from New York, Burt Cohen has been a potter most of his life. He was trained in India and Japan and has worked in many parts of the world as a ceramic consultant. Burt has been making pottery at O'keefe Ranch since 1989. The pottery  operates from the ranch's Red Shed in front of the O'keefe Mansion. You can find it by looking for the distinctive kiln.  Visitors to the workshop can see pottery in various stages of production.

 In recent years,  Burt has become involved in research for the organization Potters Without Borders, concerned with low cost ceramic water filters used in developing countries around the world. The organization actually helps to set up factories to produce filters for at risk communities.  Those interested can find out more by visiting the group's website at: www.potterswithoutborders.com
