This is Ryan's first KC Clay Guild Teabowl National and he had some marvelous entries. His accepted teabowl is the first in his gallery. I really love his glazed surfaces...yummy woodfired things!
Ryan lives in the DC area and is the Ceramics & Sculpture Studio Coordinator at George Washington University. He has taught in DC public schools and at the Corcoran School of Art and Design in DC.
Scott is a multi-year participant in Teabowl National with 6 teabowls exhibited, all on the first three rows...starting with 2017 as the first in his gallery.
Scott is an obvious wood firer and teabowl maker. I love those woodfired drips, shell markings and flashes. Delicious!!!
Scott graduated in May 2016, with an MFA in Ceramics from Wichita State Uni and had work in the Regional Student Juried Exhibition. He also "received a fellowship from the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts to create a database of local clays. While traveling across Kansas to map out different clays, Steder also tested them for porosity, water absorption and shrinkage." (Wichita State News)
