Ceramics by Ron Meyers

Georgia based ceramic artist Ron Meyers is internationally known for his whimsical pottery. He has over 30 years of experience working in clay and has taught at the University of South Carolina, Columbia and at the University of Georgia in Athens. 

What makes his work stand out from the rest is the raw and pleasantly rough texture formed by the leaving hand and finger marks by the artist while throwing on the wheel. He gives a unique characteristic to his ceramics by altering the pieces often by pokeing at the surface that is finished with animal portraits. He has conducted number of workshops and particpated in exhibitions both in the United States and abroad.
