Stephen Earp Redware
I love historical ceramics. I love not just the forms but also the stories, the quirky sense of humor, the enigmatic imagery, the elegance. The more I study ceramic history, the more I love it. I love the places it has taken me, the people it has introduced me to along the way, and how all that has helped my work to grow.
The majority of my work is historically-based interpretations of original types and styles, although I am occasionally commissioned to make exact replicas. My intention is to engage today’s audience in appreciating a wide range of decorative possibilities inherent in hand made traditional pottery.
