Meet the Maker: Stuart Gair

Stuart Gair of Stuart Gair Ceramics comes to us from Lincoln, NE. His ceramics are one of a kind pieces that are also dishwasher safe. And to be honest, all of the Hutch employees now own a piece or two of his, and are our go-to coffee mugs.

"I am drawn to the daily routines of working clay, which is both rhythmic and meditative. It is my hope that each piece I make may also become integrated into the daily use of another's life. As a student of history at Ohio University, I also began taking ceramics courses. As time went on, my passions for both clay and history began to gravitate toward one another. I realized that ceramics has an amazing past and I began to incorporate elements from my studies into my pots. This balance of interests changed the path of my life as I am currently pursing a graduate degree in ceramics at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The form and surface of each pot provides me the opportunity to explore my historical interests through the subtleties of architectural pattern, detail, and geometry."
