Teapots: An Invitational - Ron Meyers Athens, GA

Ron Meyers Teapot $250
earthenware (7.5" x 8" x 6.5")
Working with red earthenware, Ron's functional pots are made in a casual and spontaneous manner reflecting the juiciness of the material as well as the pleasure of the process.  His narrative, colored slip paintings that float on the surface in a gestural expressionistic style can be both provocative and confrontational.

Ron Meyers holds a 1967 MFA degree in ceramics from the School of American Craftsmen, Rochester Institute of Technology, a BS (1956) and MS (1961) degrees in art education from State University of New York College at Buffalo.  He taught at the University of South Carolina, Columbia, SC from 1967-1972.  He then spent the next 20 years teaching at the University of Georgia in Athens where he retired as Professor Emeritus.

Ron has an extensive history of professional activities within the ceramics community and his work is shown both nationally and internationally.
