John Sheppard

New York, NY

John Sheppard is a New York-based ceramic artist and designer. He began working in ceramics in 2010 as a more hands-on counterpoint to his work as a graphic designer and art director. His work explores the intersection of formal geometry and the natural world, and incorporates and embraces the unpredictability of hand-made work as design details.
