Kevin Pearson, Franksville, Wisconsin
For over 40 years, Kevin Pearson has explored the form and design of handmade, wheel-thrown pottery, working with different clay and kiln firing techniques. Kevin studied ceramics at Augustana College, in Rock Island, Illinois, earning a B.A. in Art and Education.
In 1974, Kevin opened his own pottery and shop in Egg Harbor, Wisconsin, during a thriving arts and crafts period in America. From its opening and until 1985, Kevin made pottery full time, exhibiting his work in regional galleries and selling his pieces at art fairs and festivals in the Midwest.
For 35 years, Kevin taught at The Prairie School in Racine, Wisconsin. He was an art teacher and middle school principal. Near the end of his career, Kevin returned to teaching art full time and was the art department chair for over ten years. It was at this time that he began to teach glassblowing at Prairie and make his own glass pieces.
Throughout and after his teaching career, Kevin continues to make pottery, which can be found and purchased at galleries and art fairs in Iowa and Wisconsin.
