Artist - Ron Wilson
Ron Wilson is a native of San Antonio, TX and an owner of Mueller & Wilson, Inc., a mechanical contracting firm. He began studying ceramics and sculpture at the Southwest School of Art around 2013, and found he enjoyed the mechanical and chemical challenges and expressive nature of clay and glaze. In 2016, he and his family opened a pottery supply business – Roadrunner Ceramics.
"My ceramic sculpture is inspired by the realistic animal portraits of artists like America’s Ed Boehm, England’s Dorothy Doughty, and Italy’s Bepi Tay. I love clay’s ability to depict stone, wood, fur, feathers, flower petals, fish scales, and human skin. My sculpture attempts to record the excitement of glimpsing a bird among the branches or a fish waiting in the clear water for a passing minnow."
