Richard Mund began working full time with clay in 1994 while apprenticing at Cunningham Pottery studio in Des Moines, Iowa. He received a BFA from NSCAD in Halifax, where he majored in ceramics with a focus on slip and maiolica glazing techniques. After working as a Continuing Education instructor and Ceramics Technician, he began running his own studio as a production potter. In 1998, after starting his business he set up his workshop and home in the village of Neustadt, Ontario which is located in Grey County. For the past 20 years his focus has been on making decorated functional pottery with fresh, rich colours
Richard says; “My pieces are intended to be used and enjoyed in a domestic environment, so I keep forms generally simple, while being considerate of weight, attention to detail and surface form relationship.”
Richard will be doing a maiolica demonstration and talking about a press molding technique to make duplicate pieces.
