Special Guest: Stephen Earp
We are delighted to have the amazing Stephen Earp present for us! Steve will share his perspectives on making pottery in traditional styles as a modern potter, including historical musings and stories from the ceramic traditions that brought us the foundations of contemporary ceramic art. See what he means by that as he throws pots and chats away. Join us for HRP's next Zoom meeting Thursday, May 13th. The meeting will open at 7:20 and the demo will start at 7:30.
Stephen Earp received a BFA in Ceramics from the University of Iowa in 1986. He apprenticed to Richard Bresnahan at St. John's Pottery in Minnesota and later worked in Nicaragua, Central America, with Potters for Peace. Returning to the US, Earp was Master Potter at Old Sturbridge Village before establishing his own studio in Shelburne Falls, MA where he currently produces work inspired by traditional American redware and English delftware. His pottery can be found on-line and in museums, historical sites,and galleries across the country. Earp’s writings on pottery and pottery history have been featured in several publications.
