Keith Hershberger is a potter based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania specializing in wood-fired ceramics made by hand, with care. He has been a working potter for more than 20 years, and his work is shown in galleries throughout the region.

Keith Hershberger says that the goal of his work is to bring people happiness and beauty in a fast-paced world. He chooses to work with wood-firing because it gives the ceramics a unique texture and appearance, building up ash on the exterior of each piece and leaving marks on the sides of the clay where the flames pass by. The result is a collection of mugs, bowls, bottles and vases featuring earthy, neutral colors and a different type of dinosaur on each piece.
