Ryan Greenheck

Ryan Greenheck’s porcelain delicacies are delightful, light-as-air constructs with strongly defined areas tied together by watery, flowing glazes. A disciplined studio potter, Greenheck produces one a kind pieces that are masterfully executed with a strong contemporary design edge. Grounded in function, his work is as much a pleasure to see as it is to use.

Ryan Greenheck Artist Statement

A structured composition is vital within the framework of my vessels. The rim and feet of my pots are strongly defined areas, while the space in between lends itself to broken down into parts. Sensitivity in the glazing process must be shown in order to preserve the essence of the piece. The glaze design is carefully orchestrated to retain my preliminary objective of conveying a satisfying form to the user.
