Ron Meyers- Seagrove "Cousins in Clay" May 2012

The 4th Annual "Cousins in Clay" in Seagrove, North Carolina will be held on May 26 and 27, 2012 at Bulldog Pottery.  Bruce and Samantha are very pleased to announce their honored guest Clay Cousin Ron Meyers.

Ron Meyers is a retired ceramics proffessor and studio potter living in Athens, Georgia. He was one of Bruce Gholson's instructors at UGA .  (Bruce received his undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia in 1978.)  Ron Meyers shows his work all over the country and is a workshop favorite throughout the states.  I read an article about him on Critical Ceramics by Barbara Kirk about his show at the AKAR gallery in Iowa City, Iowa.   She mentions that an early passion of his was to be a professional cartoonists.  I found this to be very interesting because I can imagine stories behind his drawings. His animals have strong personalities, and I can continue to wonder what are they up to next after posing for their portrait with Ron.

Ron Meyers will be here at Bulldog Pottery on May 26 & 27, 2012 for "Cousins in Clay". You will be able to meet him and collect a piece of his pottery.

We will introduce our other honored Cousin in Clay guest soon.
