Eva Behar’s Pottery
In 1991 Eve Behar took her first ceramics class and, like a lot of people who work in clay, got hooked. She continued to take classes in college and then at adult education centers while starting a career in television production. Ceramics as a hobby proved not to be enough for Eve, so in 1995 she took a break from working and went to Florence for a year to study at the Studio Art Center International.
In Italy, Eve worked on figurative sculpture, studied painting and art history and had a great time.
When Eve returned, she began to pursue her career. She worked as an assistant for the New York-based studio production potter Kathy Erteman and continued to take classes and workshops with Woody Hughes, Julia Galloway, Ron Meyers, Bruce Winn and others.
Eve went back to working in television for a while and then gave it all up a second time to go back to school once again.
This time she went Sheridan College in Oakville, Canada where she spent three intense years refining her skills and techniques with the tutelage of Bruce Cochrane, Dale Periera, Tony Clennell, and Wendy Walgate. Eve was very happy to accept the highest award of Best in Show at the Graduate Show of 2004 for her thrown and composite pieces.
Since Eve has returned to New York, she has been in fairs, gallery shows and featured on the Ceramics Monthly website.
