|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.
