About the Artist

 

IMG_3173Bruce Stebner tells people he was “born with crayons in his hand,” and that isn’t far from the truth. By the time he was a teenager, he was making pottery with the potter’s wheel and kiln his father built for him. After attending art school, he spent time as an interpretive craftsman in the museum world. There, he investigated both salt-glazed and wood fired pottery techniques. This prepared him for his 30 plus year career as a studio potter. For 18 years he focused his interest in ceramics on making faience pottery and tiles. His murals grace homes around the country. By popular demand, he began painting oils over 10 years ago, which have been collected by art lovers at home and abroad. He is a signature member of the Akron Society of Artists, where he directs their gallery.

Country Living, Country Home, The Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Akron Beacon Journal, and the Chicago Tribune. His pottery has been shown at the Mansfield Art Museum and Akron Art Museum, and has been made available for sale at the Museum of American Folk Art, New York. Galleries from Santa Fe to Nantucket have featured his work.

Frequent trips to France to paint and teach continue to fuel Bruce’s childhood passion for rural European architecture and landscapes. Country settings, antiques, animals and gardens continue to inspire and populate all he does.

    Beautiful, Bruce. So glad you share with those of us “winter-bound”, it’s a breath of sunshine in a frequently drab landscape.
