Artist Bio

Ron Coleman

artist Ron Coleman

My experience in creating pottery pieces is just a bit over six months, The path I followed to create pottery is not only interesting but also diverse. 

After 5 years as an Army Ranger (Vietnam, etc.), it only seemed natural to begin a career that would provide a dramatic switch from “destroying” to “creating.”  Consequently, I decided to become a “man of the cloth.” I became a SAILMAKER.

After nearly 30 years of working with my hands to fabricate sails, boat tops, and related items, I, like so many people, retired and took up GOLF!

To say that I became addicted to the game is clearly an understatement.  After several years, the “golf addiction” lost all its attraction, and so I began looking for a new “addiction.”

POTTERY!  Working with my hands to fabricate items out of clay was an easy transition, and it has hooked me forever.  I have not yet taken up throwing on the wheel, but it’s something to look forward to down the road.  

Ron’s pottery, “And Baby Makes Three," received a Merit Award in the 29th Annual Crooked Creek Juried Art Show.and Sale.
