The beauty of the warm colors, wholesome forms and clever designs of antique American redware first attracted Rick Hamelin in 1979. Since then, he’s immersed himself in the research of the historical potters and their techniques, creating his own lead-free redware which is brought “home” for its timeless beauty and functionality.
When you, as a patron share a corner of your home with Rick’s redware, you create your own story. Will you cook in it or display it and enjoy it for its sheer beauty? Will you smile when you hold the mug in your hands while drinking tea with your friend? The reasons why you buy it and with whom you share it is the culmination of his work. Color, form and tradition derived from history is the basis why these redware pieces will bring pleasure and comfort to your daily life.
Rick has taught and worked in museums and art centers and is currently demonstrating pottery and lecturing throughout Massachusetts.
