A structured composition is vital within the framework of my vessels.  The rim and feet of my pots are strongly defined areas, while the space in between lends itself to be broken down in parts.  I incorporate a repeated pattern over the surface to assist in accentuating the volume within the forms.  The surface of my vessels is constantly explored. Sensitivity in the glazing process must be attained in order to preserve the essence of the piece.

Ryan J. Greenheck received his Master of Fine Arts degree from SUNY College of Ceramics at Alfred University in 2004.  He also received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree as well as a Bachelor of Science degree from The University of Wisconsin-Stout in 2002.  He has participated in numerous national juried exhibitions and invitational shows since 2000.  His work is represented in many galleries throughout the country.  Ryan currently is a practicing studio potter and Lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania.
