As the youngest of four boys, Kade Greer was born and raised in Gillette, Wyoming by his parents, Randy and Lora Greer. On a cattle ranch in rural Wyoming, Kade’s parents taught their children to value equality, diversity, and inclusiveness which are foundations of Kade’s personal character. Along with this came grit, self-accountability, respect, and many other moral pleasures of learning to be a cowboy.
“Being a cowboy means I have a great responsibility to the land and livestock, but at the same time, a great reward in being able to indulge in such a serene western lifestyle. The interactions of working with horses can be divine in how they tap into every human sense. Whether I’m walking the fence line, taming a two year old stud horse, or creating a clay vessel, I am fascinated by the beauty taking place and hope to combine my western heritage and sensibility with my craft. Which brings me to my medium of choice, ceramics, which I have been creating with for the past nine years. Now, I am practicing to become a cowboy of the clay.”
“Historically many ‘potters’ have also been farmers and ranchers. I seek to combine our natural materials in Wyoming to begin my harvest of pure, humble, pottery full of integrity that is also joined by large sculpted vessels and creative manifestations.”
