Hello and welcome to Shevon Gant Ceramics.
If you have found your way to my site you are probably in the market for meaningful and well-designed ceramic gifts and keepsakes. I can tell you with confidence your journey has led you to the right place!
My name is Shevon Gant and I am a native New Yorker who has been in love with clay since the very first time I held it in my hands. As a ceramic artist, what speaks to me most about this medium is the interplay between art and science. The raw materials that inform a ceramic piece intrinsically parallel the human experience. When you hold a piece of pottery in your hands you are holding the elements that came together to create it: earth, water, and fire.
Truly handmade pottery is a wonder to behold (and hold!) and completely different from the mass-produced items you find in most stores. Each Shevon Gant piece is made of either durable stoneware or porcelain clay. Each piece is made by hand in my studio except for the upcycled restaurant ware which I first decorate and then re-fire.
I knew from a very young age that I would be dedicating my life to the pursuit of the fine arts and ceramics in particular. I received my B.F.A in sculpture in 2002 and have been teaching art and sculpture in addition to working as an artist ever since. The driving force behind my work is the creation of art that is modern, playful, and a practical addition to any home. When you purchase a Shevon Gant piece, you essentially welcome me into your home and that is an honor I do not take lightly. Knowing that my work will become part of your daily life, history, and celebrations is thrilling! You have my sincere thanks for visiting my online home. I hope you find something that will inspire and make a lovely addition to your life!
I also have an etsy shop. I list a lot of my special one of a kind items here!
