Ben Evans grew up in the Hudson Valley region of New York. At an early age he was creating and knew a career in art was his path. During his formative years he spent time on the Hudson river, which gave him a love for boats and the water, influences that can be seen in much of his work.
Ben received his BFA in Ceramics from The State University of New York at New Paltz in 2007 after which he started working as the Ceramic Studio Manager and teaching at IS183 Art School in Stockbridge, MA.
Ben’s recent work focuses on geometry and structure in architectural themes reduced to a handheld scale. The subtle geometric lines of each piece can be appreciated by sight as well as touch. Ben formulates his glazes to highlight the clean lines of his porcelain work. By using a palette of rich colors paired with neutrals users are able to mix and match pieces to compliment their unique style. Ben focuses on the comfort and functionality of each piece to insure people will never want to stop using it.
