Eric Pardue

Eric Pardue is an artist based in Milton, WV. After receiving a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from Alfred University in Alfred, NY, Eric went on to serve a year’s residency at Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts in Maine and a year’s apprenticeship with New York based ceramic artist, Jeff Shapiro. Returning to his home state, Mr. Pardue set up a studio where he has pursued various ideas in clay and currently works in low fire earthenware with applied imagery. These images, covering a broad range of topics, serve to tell stories that share interests both specific to the maker and, hopefully, that engage the viewer to develop their own narratives from the pieces.
