Crozet Artisan Depot is thrilled to present a show and sale of pottery by Stephen Palmer of Stephen Palmer Ceramics (Charlottesville VA) from March 1-31, 2020. A Meet the Artist reception will be held as part of Second Saturday Crozet on March 14 from 1-3pm in the historic Crozet train depot, 5791 Three Notch’d Road.
For his show at The Depot, Stephen will bring bowls, jars, plates, teapots, and other functional items designed with whimsy to bring joy to the user. Many of his pieces are a combination of wheel throwing and hand building, using an underglaze transfer process to add patterns. They are then fired to cone 6 oxidation.
“As I grow older, it’s the things from childhood that bring me joy and influence my work: a toy rocket ship that could take me to the moon, a plastic dinosaur that carries the soldier into battle, and robots, lots of robots. The mechanical aspect of my pieces is influenced by Jules Verne and his many fantastic adventures.” –Stephen Palmer
