Meyers has worked in clay for over 30 years. He is a professor emeritus at the University of Georgia.
Regarding his functional pottery pieces, Meyers said, â€śI have always tried to make work that is casually made and gestural â€“ letting the clay qualities come through in the finished piece.
Admission to all events is free and open to the public.
