“Being recognized as an Emerging Artist by NCECA made me feel validated. I became more accepting about where I was artistically and it also gave my career a nice benchmark from which to proceed. I hope this experience continues to be a springboard for exposing my artwork to new audiences and for helping to foster the personal connections that are vital to the ceramic arts.” – Sean Scott

Sean was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio. He earned a B.F.A. from Ohio University in 1996 and a M.F.A. from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2005. Since then he has operated Pomme de Terre Pottery near Battle Lake, Minnesota. Sean exhibits his work nationally and teaches workshops. The vessels Scott creates are meant to enrich the experience of storing, serving and consuming food and drink. The aesthetics reflect a personal sense of place where he lives in rural Minnesota. Scott intends for each piece to be an interactive component in a collaboration between maker, user and environment.

Watch for the 2020 Emerging Artist exhibition and presentations at the next NCECA Conference in Richmond Virginia, March 25 – 28, 2020
