Peter Beasecker - Teapot
9.75"w x 6"d x 6"h
Peter Beasecker was born in Toledo, Ohio, and received a BS degree from Miami University and an MFA from Alfred University. He has been recognized for many years as a maker of quiet, elegant porcelain pots reflecting a studied and haptic sensibility. Peter’s recent work has concentrated on ‘carriers,’ dark stoneware vessels holding numerous porcelain cups or bowls. He also continues his porcelain work, making simple plates, bowls, and vases.
He joined the faculty of Syracuse University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts in 2009 as an Associate Professor. Before this appointment, he was a Professor of Art at the Meadows School of the Arts, Southern Methodist University. He has exhibited extensively in national and international venues, and his work is included in the collections of the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution, The Minneapolis Institute of Art, and the Mint Museum in North Carolina. He has been a visiting artist and workshop leader at over sixty institutions, including Anderson Ranch, Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and the Penland School of Craft.
*Teapots that are sold must remain on display in the gallery as part of the exhibit until the show closes on September 10, 2020. After the show closes, teapots will be carefully packed and shipped by September 26 or available for pick-up at the gallery.
