Ernest Miller

Ernest Miller is a ceramic artist residing in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  His work is exhibited in various regional and national art fairs including the Uptown Art Fair in Minneapolis, MN and Plaza Art Fair in Kansas City, MO. 

 

Ernest shares his ceramic techniques by teaching classes at Fired Up Studios in Minneapolis, MN and the Minnetonka Center for the Arts in Wayzata, MN.  In 2011 he was the recipient of a Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative grant.  His educational background includes an associates degree from Olney Central College in Olney, IL and a bachelor of arts degree from Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, IL. 

 

As a vessel maker, Ernest uses porcelain clay to create bottles, plates and bowls that serve both utilitarian and decorative purposes.  The cohesion of glaze and vessel are a continual pursuit exercised through glaze alchemy and the investigation of ceramic form.  His inspiration is drawn from everyday objects, architecture, and landscape along with the fascination of the creative process, focused work, and trusting the practiced hand and eye. 

 

Most of his work is made with porcelain clay that is mixed and pugged in studio.  The pieces usually begin on the potter’s wheel and later hand altered and trimmed. Once dried and bisque fired they are coated with glaze and finish fired to 2,250 degrees Fahrenheit.
