Upcoming events

There are a couple of shows that I’ll be involved with in December.

Dec 1-3, I will be taking part in the 43rd Annual Pottery Show and Sale at The Art School at Old Church, Demarest, NJ. Thirty of America’s top functional potters will be there…I am honored to be a part of this event.



Dec 9-10, will be the (give or take a year or two) 40th annual holiday show and sale at my studio in the Hungerford Building, 1115 E. Main St., Rochester, NY 14609.  10am-4 pm both day.  Soups and other savory items will be served along with great pots, blown glass, sculpture and drawings by Peter Secrest, Kurt Feuerherm, Carolyn Dilcher-Stutz and myself.


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
