John Sheppard

New York, New York

John Sheppard is a New York City-based ceramic artist whose work is characterized by clean geometric shapes inspired by a range of influences, including nature, Brutalism, Richard Serra, Art Deco, and outer space. He forms and finishes each object by hand, ensuring layers of depth and texture, often embracing irregularities rather than disguising them. The end result is a collection that feels of-the-moment, yet timeless. Originally trained as a graphic designer, John launched his ceramics practice at the legendary Greenwich House Pottery, and now works out of his private studio in the Bronx.
