Branan Mercer

Branan Mercer began working with clay as an undergraduate at Auburn University. After receiving his BFA in ceramics in 2008, he travelled to St. Petersburg, Florida to work as an artist in residence at The Craftsman House Gallery. From there he moved to Fairhope, Alabama where he spent four years as Studio Manager and Pottery Instructor at The Kiln Studio and Gallery. Currently he resides in Birmingham, Alabama where his studio efforts are focused on creating well crafted functional ceramic works. His work has been exhibited across the United States and Europe and resides in the private collections of Mayor Sakura in Ichihara, Japan and several notable teabowl collections in Canada, England, France and Germany. “For three years I have concentrated on one form and have found great satisfaction in the subtle changes that occur to a body of work over such a long period of focus. The form, surface, color and process may all seem the same, but for me every cup presents a new line, a better balance or the possibility to use a different technique. It is the seemingly unnoticed changes that keep me interested in the studio and driven to create the best version of this cup that I possibly can.”
