Henry Mead


Ceramicist
American, (1928–2018)

Born in 1928, Henry Mead spent much of his career as a potter and educator living in Denver and Carbondale Colorado. He received a Master’s Degree in Ceramic Design and quickly established his own pottery studio just west of Castle Rock, Colorado in 1964. The location of this studio had a significant impact on his unique aesthetic as the local clay, a fine yellow powder that turns a soft red when fired to stoneware temperatures, yielded a particular color palette when combined with glazes. Mead taught ceramics at Temple Buell College, special classes for the Colorado Potters Guild and was chairman of the Colorado Artist-Craftsmen until he moved to Pasadena, California in in early 1990’s. There he continued to make and collaborate with his partner and fellow artist, Joyce Newman, until his death in 2018 at 90-years-of-age.
