Stephen Mullins was born and raised in the heart of America’s blue collar coal country in Gillette, Wyoming. He earned a BFA from the University of Wyoming, and in 2018 opened a brick-and-mortar ceramic production house and clay center on Main Street in Sheridan, Wyoming. Mullins owns and operates Red Bison, running community classes and a full ceramic production line. These days he focuses on production during the day and more eclectic pots in the middle of the night.
