Stephen Dean is passionate about pottery.  An avid collector for many years, Dean began taking ceramics classes in the 80's to learn the art of throwing pots and has found himself knee-deep in clay ever since.  He experiments with a variety of glazes and shapes and utilizes mainly gas kiln firing.
Dean’s rectangular platters are especially popular with their textured surfaces and warm glazes.  His ceramic bowls are smooth with a fabulous heft.   And a Dean-crafted vase is a must for displaying anything from simple cut flowers to fabulous bouquets. For the most part, his pieces are dishwasher safe so you can always make a case for practicality when purchasing Dean ceramics.  It’s practical…and alluring.

His policy is “Please touch” so don’t ever walk away from a showing without putting your hands on his work!
