About Eric Stearns: 
Eric was born and raised on a ranch near North Platte, Nebraska. He earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree with a Professional Emphasis in 2003 from Doane College in Crete, Nebraska. He returned to North Platte to open his studio, Stearns Ceramics, while teaching and assisting with his family’s ranch. He then opened his first studio, Stearns Ceramics, in North Platte, NE.

After a couple of years teaching full-time, working in his studio, and assisting his family on the ranch, he committed more fully to his art and in 2008 he received a Master of Fine Arts studying under Linda Ganstrom at Fort Hays State University. 

Eric returned to Doane College after receiving his MFA and is now Associate Professor and Chair of the Art Department. When not teaching, Eric spends time in the studio creating sculptural pierced raku art. His work can be seen at the Country Club Plaza location of The Phoenix Gallery.
