Oddly enough, Wyatt Little learned ceramics while interning at NASA in Houston, Texas. He was invited there to help construct the latest SEV Rover and in his spare time he started studying slip casting. It took a while, but eventually he learned how to construct pretty complex molds, and from there his own design ideas began to flourish.
Wyatt's work embodies whimsy and wit. He takes an unorthodox approach to designing new objects - starting with a unique circumstance, and then translating it into a physical product that everyone can relate to. Shoes hanging from power lines, mega churches, and getting pooped on by birds are just a few examples of his inspirations. While this inspiration is born out of seemingly unfortunate scenarios, his work always takes on an optimistic and often times humorous tone.
After five years of making his designs full time, it is still the most gratifying craft Wyatt has ever been exposed to.
