Ceramic Studio Manager
Ronald Shaw is a studio potter and teacher living and working in West Palm Beach, FL. His current body of work is being made using several different construction techniques to create pieces on a large scale, including hand building and sculpting, wheel-throwing, stacking and assembling, and coil and paddle using a handmade kick wheel. Once the forms are constructed using stoneware or porcelain clay, they are either handsculpted to create texture, or carved to create negative space. The formal qualities of his work are influenced by natural structures and textures, along with fractalizations and organic patterns that occur in botany, mycology, and geology.
