POTSTOCK Guest Brad Bachmeier

We are thrilled to be adding a second POSTOCK guest artist to our list. Meet North Dakota-native ceramicist, Brad Bachmeier! Brad is originally from Anamoose, North Dakota and is currently living south of Fargo with his wife Susan and their four children. Bachmeier serves as the Professor of Art Education at Minnesota State University Moorhead where in 2013, he was granted the “Excellence in Research and Creative Activity” award. He opened Bachmeier Pottery and Sculpture in 1993 and has artwork represented in over 45 states.

His ceramic vessels and sculpture tell the story of man's ancient and universal partnership with clay through the use of religion studies, global patterns, symbols, iconography, and various firing techniques. He is committed to creating work that can tell the story of humanity's shared virtues in a way that is contemporary and meaningful to our culture in the hope of helping to revive its collective conscience.
