Robert Behr | Ceramics
For over thirty years, Robert Behr has actively pursued the art of Ceramics. From his first pottery course in High School to a Bachelors Degree in Art from Colorado State University, Robert has evolved from a full-time production potter of functional ceramics to creating unique decorative fine art vessels that sell in a number of fine art galleries.
Currently, Robert and his wife Leah work together to produce each original vessel that tributes the wildlife and reflects the idyllic lifestyle they enjoy in the Crazy Mountains of Montana. From start to finish, each ‘Spirit Vessel’ is thrown, glazed, and decorated by hand in a lengthy process. The ornamentation that accompanies each vessel is one-of-a-kind and a work of art in itself made up of objects collected across the country. There are very few artists today working in this medium of producing large-scale, high-fired stoneware. While living in Montana, with special admiration for the abundant wildlife and enjoying the process of utilizing these materials, Robert and Leah continue to discover themselves through the creation of each individual piece.
