Eric Stearns literally changed our ceramic world here at AHS.  Through a workshop in the summer of 2013 held at Bracker's of Lawrence, KS., we have directly and in-directly used so much from that presentation as a basis of what we do on a day-to-day basis.  Explore this site thoroughly for research on form, function, decoration and exploration of pottery by Eric.
