About Stephen Earp
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.
Bonus points: name that museum!
About the work
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, such as redware and delftware.
I bring decades of pottery experience and extensive research to the creation of this time-honored, hand made, and food safe pottery.
