Biography of the artist (David J. Coleman) -

A full-time potter and artist for over 20 years, David J. Coleman creates high quality, functional pottery and one-of-a-kind artworks. At his studio in the southern Adirondacks, his works are inspired by the landscapes and animals of the Adirondack mountains.

All through David's youth, he loved art and working with his hands. While studying art at SUNY Potsdam, he discovered pottery and loved it. David graduated from Potsdam in 1979 with a BFA and majors in painting and pottery.

In 1981, Sharon and David established Fawn Ridge Pottery at its present location. They started selling pottery at various arts and crafts shows. The studio and shop opened soon after that to the public and is available to the passing shopper, who is looking the highest quality hand-thrown pottery that one can buy.

David's work is now sold here online as well as at the Fawn Ridge Pottery studio-shop, many fine quality craft stores, and select arts and crafts shows that he attends.

David has been refining and expanding his skills with clay for 20 years. His pottery is remarkably light, yet durable and totally functional, as well as finely crafted and aesthetically pleasing. From his hand-painted, beautiful, natural scenes to the flowing-glaze designs that he uses on his stoneware, his pottery is unique and coveted by those who know and purchase his work time and time again.

David also loves to design and produce unique clay sculptures and garden decorations. These whimsical items not only look great in the garden but are one-of-a-kind creations that are a joy to own. David's ceramic sculptures and garden decorations are highly prized by those who have been fortunate enough to own some of these specialty items.
