Sculptural Ceramics by Ryan Myers

Ryan Myers is a ceramic artist based in Madison, Wisconsin. He graduated with Masters in Fine Arts from University of Wisconsin-Madison Madison in 2005. While growing up he was surrounded with Native American artifacts and American antiques. Early on in his life, he learnt to appreciate aged metal, old furniture, and musty smell of books.

He sculpts ceramic pieces that are unusual in design but functional in nature. Jugs, vessels, vases, cups, and teapots are created using a combination of thrown and hand-building processes. His work was influenced by his love for toys, Latin American ceramics, architecture and the American folk face jug tradition started by early American potters.

He has participated in several exhibitions all over the country. He recently won first place in at the Jansen Art Center in Washington State. To find out about his upcoming shows, follow him on Facebook.
