Bachmeier pottery is a small family business operating just south of Fargo, ND. My wife Susan’s grandparents and my own both homesteaded in this region. Consequently our family has strong connections to the area due to extended family, the land, the people and the values present here. I (Brad) am the ceramic artist who also works full time as the Professor of Art Education at Minnesota State University Moorhead. Previous to this position, I had the privilege of teaching art at every grade K-12 in both North Dakota and Minnesota public school systems. I hope through this site you will see the growth of my ceramic work since the inception of the business in 1993 from vessel making, to sculpture to large-scale work. I hope you also feel a commitment and passion for the arts, children and education.

THE RETURN OF GOLEM

Artist Statement

As an artist and educator, I feel a responsibility to serve my local, regional and global community. I create ceramic vessels and sculpture that tell the story of man’s ancient and universal partnership with clay through the use of religion studies, global patterns, symbols, iconography, and various firing techniques. I am committed to creating work that can tell the story of humanity’s shared virtues in a way that is contemporary and meaningful to our culture in the hope of helping to revive its collective conscience.
