ImageA student at Bryan High School in Ohio, a school CelebratingArt.com knows for its incredible pottery abilities (as well as other forms of art), Kyler Welden has been published several times for his talented art pieces. Kyler was first published in our Summer 2012 book for his pottery “Ocean.”  After that, he was selected as a Top Ten Winner in our Spring 2013 contest for “Sun Set.”  Finally, Kyler was chosen yet again as a Top Ten Winner for his piece “Ring Tea Set” in our Summer 2013 contest. You can see all three pieces below (“Ocean” shown first, then “Sun Set”, last is “Ring Tea Set”):

Kyler enjoys hunting and fishing, and loves ceramics. Kyler explains, “My inspiration to try pottery was my sister Whitney’s friends. Two of her friends that she hung around with a lot gave her some mugs and I thought it would be cool to be able to drink out of something that I made.”

In the future, Kyler plans to graduate from college. He is unsure what he wants to study in school, but he does want to go. He also wants to continue pottery for the rest of his life.
