About the Artist

Sam Wild graduated from Sandusky High School, Sandusky, Ohio, in 1960. He then spent 3 years in the U.S. Navy, traveling to Japan, Australia, Thailand and other Pacific destinations. After his discharge from the Navy, he earned Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Fine Arts from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. In 1971, he established a home and studio in Potter Place, a village of Andover, New Hampshire, and lived there for 31 years, moving to Wilmot, New Hampshire in 2002.

For many years, Sam produced a line of functional pottery glazed with a matte white glaze ornamented with blue and brown brushwork of nature motifs. Desirous of more variety in his work, he conducted hundreds of glaze experiments before, to his wife's immense relief, he settled on his new glaze, which allowed him to break free and produce more exuberant work that related back to work he had done in college. Sam works alone and produces all of his work himself but is assisted in many other aspects by his wife, Gail, whom he met at Ohio University.

Since 1971, Sam has had a booth at the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen's annual fair at Mount Sunapee, New Hampshire (the oldest crafts fair in the U.S.). The fair, along with sales from his shop at his home and a number of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen shops, constitute the primary retail outlets for his work.
