About John Sheppard

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, and often embracing irregularities rather than disguising them. The end result is a collection that feels of-the-moment, yet timeless.
