new york stoneware

Inspired by the craft of pottery making and the quiet confidence of objects refined repeatedly by skilled craftspeople, William Reardon founded New York Stoneware in 2013 in the Bronx. With an eye toward simple gestures, purposeful forms and an appreciation of honest craftsmanship, William creates objects at once functional and soulful. "I want to make pottery that can be incorporated into people’s everyday lives - hoping that in doing so individuals come to appreciate the spontaneity and beautiful variation of the handmade object. At the same time these aren’t precious objects and I hope that with continued use they create their own significance for the user”
