Stephen Hearne

Stephen Hearne has been working in clay for 10 years specializing in handmade ceramic tiles. He obtains instruction at Skyline College. Inspiration for his pottery tiles comes from work seen in California tiles of the 1920's. Stephen resides in Pacifica, CA. He is a member of the Pacifica Art Guild. His tiles have been included in group exhibitions at the Sanchez Art Center and at the Skyline College Art Gallery. Stephen has an annual solo show at the Fog City Java in Pacifica.
My work consists of brightly glazed ceramic tiles. I use terracotta clay to add richness to the colors and wax-lines to provide a crisp separation between colors. The glazes are bulbed on in order to produce a thick, even, glossy surface. My tiles are displayed in a number of ways. I arrange tile murals inside of vintage wooden Coca-Cola crates and add a found object. These pieces engage the observer to find the relationship between the object and the mural. I also create traditional tile murals, framed single tiles, pavers, and tile top tables. Following the belief that people like something familiar presented in a new way, I design tiles that are simple yet striking enough to evoke feeling.
