Dick Overman has been making pottery in Cincinnati since 1972 after a short course on throwing on the wheel. Since then his education has been mostly s through books, workshops, discussions with other potters, and experimentation. He has taught pottery classes and conducted demonstrations.
Dick works in high fired stoneware clay (cone 9) using oxidation glazes he has developed over the years. His work consists of functional thrown shapes with whimsical sculpted additions.
He maintains a studio in his home in Cincinnati (Blue Ash) and has been showing at area art shows and galleries since 1973.
