Brian Geier is a studio potter working out of Lakewood, CO. He focuses on making decorative and functional ceramic pieces using porcelain and crystalline glazes. Geier’s background in geography is the main source of inspiration for his crystalline glazes, specifically the mineral, Ocean Jasper, which is part of the Quartz family. His beautiful surfaces and the process behind achieving such wonderful surface variation is what interests Geier most—no two crystalline pieces are ever the same. Brian Geier received his AA from Waubonsee Community College in Sugar Grove, Illinois, and his BS in Geography from Northern Illinois University in DeKalb.
