About:

Billy Ray Hussey is a self-taught artist who follows a traditional southern pottery history, creating ceramic pieces that reflect satire, humor, enlightenment, and pleasure. Billy grew up in Seagrove, North Carolina and comes from a family of potters. His ideas are drawn from an imaginative mind, forming expressive story figures and farm animals simply out of clay.
