Ron Meyers holds an MFA in ceramics from the School for American Craftsmen, Rochester Institute of Technology, and BS and MS degrees in art education from State University of New York College at Buffalo. He taught at the University of South Carolina, Columbia, SC from 1967-1972. He then spent the next 20 years teaching at the University of Georgia in Athens where he retired as Professor Emeritus.
Working with red earthenware, Ron’s functional pots are made in a casual and spontaneous manner. His narrative, colored slip paintings of rats, fish, bats, rabbits, chickens, etc. that float on the surface in a gestural expressionistic style can be both provocative and confrontational.
