Ralph Mello

Ralph creates wheel thrown stoneware with high fire gas reduction glazes and stained glass. He enjoys making classical, sculptural and functional forms using different textures, colors, and shapes.

I enjoy art of many mediums. For my pieces I draw inspiration from the historic, classical ceramics of the Chinese and Greek to the whimsical fantasy of Antoni Gaudi’s architecture.

Art and nature provide a limitless resource to choose from while doing my work.

I have shown my work around the Charlotte area at the Carolina Claymatters Pottery Festival, Huntersville Art Walk, Guild sponsored display at Charlotte Douglas Airport, Art in The Park in Blowing Rock NC, Festival in the Park and The Union County Art Guild Doug Helms Memorial Art show at which I won the Potters House Award in 2010.

I have a home studio and I am also a studio artist at Clayworks on Monroe Rd.
