Everette Busby is known for wood-fired stoneware and low-fired earthenware vessels. Wood-fired pottery is most often wheel thrown and fired in an Anagama-style kiln with minimal to no glaze application, appearing in a variety of earth-tone colors. Low fire earthenware vessels are most often constructed in the likeness of animals, or simply as functional forms. Surfaces are often highly decorated using brightly colored slips over earth-red clay. Busby's earthenware work in clay is motivated by an interest in Mediterranean Pottery, namely, Spanish works from the Renaissance.
