Peter Ronan

Peter Ronan (Chicago, IL)

“Through the use of ornate hand-built vessels, designer Slip cast pieces, and functional objects I create a representation of my existence as a gay male. I craft objects that are both functional and decorative—the objects are not always functional in the traditional craft sense of the word. Instead they function specifically within queer fringe culture.”

Peter Ronan is a former nomadic artist who grew up between Idaho and Washington. He is a fabulous butch queen who makes work that is focused on the queer experience. His studio space is located at Lillstreet art center where he was a resident artist from 2019-2020. He received the 2018-2019 anonymous studio residency at the Northern Clay Center in Minneapolis. He attended Boise State University where he received his BFA with a concentration in ceramics.
