Aaron A Harrison
Aaron Harrison began his exploration of clay in 1998 as a sophomore at Houghton College. After graduating with a double concentration in design and ceramics, he found work as a production slip caster in Greene, NY. Many of the pieces that were produced focused on birds, and he carried this idea of the bird form in his head for a few years.
In 2009, he left the production studio to begin his own studio. The following spring of 2010 was marked by an influx of bird species. Aaron would sit mesmerized, watching as four different species would be sitting on the feeder at one time with more perched in the trees above awaiting their turn. He began experimenting with casting his own bird figures and in the fall of 2011, a couple of knitter friends introduced him to the idea of the yarn bowl. It was here that the two ideas merged.
