About Eric Strader
My love for clay began as a child, when I spent many hours in my grandfather Stanley Kellogg’s pottery studio located in Petoskey, Michigan. After receiving a degree in clarinet performance from Western Michigan University, I studied ceramics at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts. My wife and I then relocated to Goshen, Indiana where I apprenticed with Dick Lehman and established myself as a studio potter. We have since moved to my wife’s family farm in Plainwell, Michigan, where my studio is also now located. My work includes functional as well as one-of-a-kind pieces that have been featured in many invitational and juried exhibitions as well as art fairs throughout the Midwest. Each pot is hand-thrown on a potter’s wheel and I use several different stoneware and porcelain clay bodies. After applying a combination of glazes and firing the pots to approximately 2300 degrees F in my gas kiln, they are finished and ready for use. All of my glazes are lead-free, and pots are safe for oven, microwave, and dishwasher use.
