Stuart Gair makes pottery that is intricately decorated and utilitarian in nature. As a student of history, he is drawn to the essence of strength found in architecture, masonry and work that has endured through time. Surface treatment provides him the opportunity to explore these interests through the subtleties of architectural pattern, detail, and geometry.

Gair received his MFA in ceramics the from University of Nebraska, Lincoln, and his BAS in history at Ohio University, Athens, where he also completed post-baccalaureate work in ceramics. Gair has been an artist-in-residence at Harvard University Ceramics Studio, the Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts, and the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts.
