"He did not throw well on the wheel; he made most of his pottery in press molds. He did not give glaze formulas to his students; he personally sprayed each pot with the students' choice of a glaze. He did not depend on ceramic supply companies; he searched the desert and mountain areas of the Southwest for raw materials. A ceramist and teacher, Glen Lukens follower his instincts along a path that brought him recognition for innovative pottery and glass, work that reflected the ambience of the Southwest. His emotional, intuitive approach to the material foreshadowed the philosophy of the next generation of studio potters."
