Jacob Meer will use his residency to transition his work to low-fire soda firing and develop a new body of work. Meer has just finished a residency at the Morean Center for Clay in St. Petersburg, FL. He has also been an apprentice to Simon Levin at Mill Creek Pottery in Gresham, WI, and holds a BFA from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Meer’s work is inspired by objects found in his grandparents’ home and the stories held within them. He works to create utilitarian work that showcases a story and the history of its making.
