In 2013, Reardon established New York Stoneware in Brooklyn, New York, creating and selling his own line of pottery. By refining and updating classic forms, his pieces achieve an understated elegance.
On his work, Reardon notes, "I want to make pottery that can be incorporated into people’s everyday lives, hoping that, in doing so, users come to appreciate the spontaneity and beautiful variation of the handmade object. In an age of industrial manufacturing, my handmade pottery has seemed to strike a chord with many people”
Inspired by the subtle beauty of simple objects made by highly skilled craftspeople, it is Reardon’s desire to make clean-lined, elegant pottery. Though they are one-of-a-kind pieces, Reardon insists that they are meant for function.
“My creations are not meant to be treated as precious objects. They are meant to be used, and I hope that with continued and frequent use, my objects gain in significance to the user.”
