Allen Gee was born in Statesboro, Georgia and served in the US Navy after graduating high school. He then attended Georgia Southern where he received a BS in Art Education and Industrial Arts Education in 1977. His interest in pottery began when he took a ceramics class in college, and he developed his skills by working as a production potter in Macon for two years. He mixes his own clay in a motorized washtub and uses an electric wheel to throw his pottery. His glazes are mostly derived from local minerals and most of his work is fired in a wood burning kiln.
He currently resides in Greenville, Georgia.
