Upcoming events

When it is warm, and I do believe it will be warm again, despite this year’s evidence to the contrary (snow on 17 of the first 20 days of April), Carolyn and I will be taking part in the inaugural Finger Lakes Pottery Tour. We will be located, along with several other potters, at Julie Croby’s studio in Trumansburg, NY. There should be plenty of nice pots and a good opportunity to do some scenic touring for those interested. Click on the link for more info.

Early June in Cincinnati, Ohio means the 10th annual Pots and Lemonade show at the home of Louise Jenks, taking place June 9 from 10 am til 4 pm. (1326 Edwards Road, Cinti, 45208) Visitors can see the ceramic work of Louise, Terry Kern, longtime Cincinnati potters Pam Korte and Brenda Brown Tarbell, as well as linger on the porch for some cookies and the aforementioned lemonade. A good time is had by all, guaranteed!


I am a full-time potter working in Rochester, NY. I have been making my living in clay since 1979, and produce a range of stoneware, ash glazed and single-fired, which is suitable for use on the table and around the house. My work is available to see and purchase in my studio showroom, at galleries and art fairs around the country, which are just a mouseclick away on this website.

I am also available for demonstration and hands-on workshops both in my studio and at art centers and schools around the country. I share a large urban studio with Carolyn Dilcher Stutz, each of us working individually as well as collaboratively. Please feel free to stop in or contact me at any time. Meanwhile, wander the site, sample images and writings from the past thirty years, and feel free to contact me anytime! Thanks for visiting! ~Richard Aerni
