Robert (Bob) Hasselle is known for production porcelain pottery and raku fired sculptural works. Hasselle finishes his sculptures with a matte copper raku process to create a bronze-like finish.

Hasselle’s production pottery from the 1970’s and 1980’s was usually of muted browns and grays. After 2000, Hasselle began using red earthenware and overlaid glazes to create a colorful palette of red, blues, and greens.
