Benjamin Maier Ceramics is located on Main Street in beautiful Leland, Michigan. The gallery is open from Memorial Day to Halloween. In the off season Ben can be found in his studio making work for the following season using both wood and soda firing techniques.
Ben describes working in the studio as giving him meaning and rhythm to his life, and the table being a stage to showcase his work. He makes pottery that holds functional qualities, plates, vases, cups or teapots – however, he challenges himself and his audience to look beyond function and use the medium to address artistic concepts including metaphor, perception, and human interaction.
