RON GEERING


Ron Geering

Ron Geering uses traditional earthenware clays and glazes to make 17th- & 18th-Century-style slipware pottery. He builds each piece by hand or throws it on the potter's wheel, then embellishes it with the folk techniques of sgraffito, sliptrailing, combing, or the application of hand stamped clay sprigs. He fires the pottery in a kiln, glazes it, and fires it a second time to over 2000 Fahrenheit. This hand crafting process guarantees slight variations in size, form, color, and decoration making each piece unique.

Geering has been working as a traditional craftsman for over 30 years. He has worked for many heritage organizations such as Henry Ford Museum, Greenfield Village, Plimoth Plantation, The Freedom Trail Foundation, and the New Bedford Whaling Museum. His work has been represented in many national exhibits and in the collection of the White House. He has carried out extensive research in museums, workshops and private collections throughout the United States, Europe, Scandinavia, and Great Britain.

Since 1993 Geering has maintained a studio on Cape Cod producing wares strongly influenced by historical examples; interpreting traditional craftwork in a personal, contemporary way. The pieces are still easy recognizable as belonging to the slipware tradition but are enhanced by the unique experience and sensibilities of the artist/craftsman.
