Jerde Designs is a small pottery studio out of Arbor Vitae, Wisconsin. Jerde Designs employs a combination approach of modern and innovative technologies (3D Modeling & Clay Extrusion Printing) in addition to traditional wheel trimming, finishing, and glazing to produce unique pieces of ceramic art. They are not defined by any one specific style as they feel that would limit the scope and potential of their creativity, but instead prefer to draw inspiration from multiple sources. Each piece is handcrafted by artist Tyler Jerde.
Tyler has had an interest in art from the age of 11 where he learned to paint from his grandmother, Barb. He has dabbled in watercolor and acrylic art since and has a profound appreciation for experimental color and application techniques which has translated well to his glaze work. His work has been influenced by his upbringing in Northern Wisconsin where his home studio is located.
