Brian Evans is a ceramic artist who finds inspiration from his surroundings. He uses textured glazes to emulate weathered or patinaed surfaces that are common due to the salty air of Coastal North Carolina. Brian began working in ceramics in 1995 through the Continuing Education program at Cape Fear Community College while searching for an outlet for artistic expression. He is a full-time ceramic artist. Brian is a founding member of the Coastal Carolina Clay Guild in Wilmington, NC which began in 2007 and is currently serving as President of the Coastal Carolina Clay Guild. Brian studied under Japanese-American Potter, Hiroshi Sueyoshi and currently lives and works in Wilmington, NC.
