About Eric

Possessed with a natural curiosity, Eric’s interest in pottery began in high school and further developed at the Octagon Center for the Arts, Ames, Iowa where he was able to practice and perfect his art with hours of open studio time at his disposal. 

Following this training, Eric apprenticed at a local interactive outdoor museum where his hand-thrown stoneware took shape. The simplicity of both form and function became a priority for him and his work reflects that in a variety of functional stoneware and earthenware that appeal to the eye and meet practical needs.
