About Ron
Ron Philbeck is a potter specializing in wheel-thrown, sodium vapor glazed pottery.  He creates limited production and one-of-a-kind pots at his studio in Shelby, N.C.  He believes pots should be well made, pleasant to look at, and easy to use.
Ron studied mathematics and horticulture at North Carolina State University. After graduating, an unfulfilled desire to attend art school led him to attend pottery workshops and conferences. Ron states, “I made lots of pots, really bad ones, for quite some while before I went full-time as a potter in 1996.”
All of Ron’s pieces are microwave and dishwasher safe and lead free. Never place on direct flame.

*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.

About National Teapot Show XII

May 20 - September 10, 2023

Cedar Creek Gallery's National Teapot Show XII is an invitational event featuring teapots crafted by artists from across North America.  More than 200 hand-crafted teapots created using a broad range of materials - including pottery, glass, wood, fiber, and mixed media.

Teapots in the show come in all shapes and sizes! Some are functional - just right for your daily cup of tea, while others are created as sculptural teapots.
