Incredible proportion and impeccable technical skills offer you some of the very best pottery we have. He has spent a lifetime perfecting this work and it’s wood ash glaze finishes.

From Arts In Focus:
“Richard Aerni is a staple of the Rochester art scene. If you’ve ever been to Clothesline Festival at the Memorial Art Gallery, you’d be hard pressed to miss him. Just look for the ceramics that catch your eye from a distance and draw you in with their intricate and unique glazes. We had the pleasure of visiting him in his studio, here’s a look.”
