Bradley Birkhimer - Ceramic Artist

Since 2006 Bradley has been creating one of a kind, wood, soda and gas fired ceramics for exhibition and the home. Bradley works at his studio at his home in Manassas, VA.  He also services ceramic equipment for schools, local potters, and art centers in the DC Metro area. Bradley has been an Adjunct Professor at Hood College since 2011 for the Ceramic Arts  program.The gas fired work is fired to 2370 degrees Fahrenheit and most glazes are sprayed with baking soda to enhance colors and surface textures.  This emulates the wood fired surfaces and allows for more consistent results.  All of the pottery is made with his personal white stoneware blend, custom ash and mottled glazes.  Daily use and enjoyment are these pots intentions and it is his hope that you can see the beauty and truth in them.

 
"My experiences in China have given me a framework to combine Chinese architecture, my Christian faith, and American culture into my ceramics.  Western utilitarian pottery is my foundation throughout my forms.  Please enjoy using this unique pottery everyday, for it is safe in all aspects of the modern kitchen.  Thank you for all your support!"
