This 2010 Artisans Road Trip blog highlights Potter Mel Myers from Spencer.
Local Potter Mel Myers has been busy showing at the Iowa City Art Show and the Spencer Alumni Art Show at Arts on Grand in Spencer, Iowa.
Mel's ceramics are hand thrown, delicately carved, with original glaze formulas - thus making truly one of a kind pieces. The result is both a decorative and functional piece of art. His high fire pottery can be used in the oven, safely used for food, and nicely cleans up in the dish washer.
Mel's studio is practically always open for visitors at 717 11th Avenue East in Spencer, Iowa. His studio, Clay County Clay, can be found by turning east at the Hy Vee/Walgreen's corner on Grand Avenue, and going east as far as one can (and still be in Spencer). Feel free to stop in and see Mel's most recent work!
