Ron Meyers has spent decades working with red earthenware. His thrown pots, always functional in some way, display his casual and spontaneous manner with clay. Each of Meyer’s pots is characterized by hand and finger marks left from throwing and altering the piece. He commonly pokes pieces, adding a wobbly unevenness to the forms.

His early passion to become a cartoonist evident in his narrative, sometimes confrontational, colored slip surface paintings. His whimsical subjects range from animal forms to female nudes. Meyers fires his works first in an electric kiln and then in a gas kiln.
