Ronald Hayes Pearson

Ronald Hayes Pearson

In 1946 Ronald Hayes Pearson enrolled in a Reed and Barton design program. The class inspired him to try his own hand at metal, and ultimately, encouraged him to move to Rochester, New York where he formed the country’s first artist-owned gallery. As pieces like his essential Vision flatware attest to, Ronald Hayes Pearson pieces are Modernistic in style, yet also convey an artful fluidity; their eternal goal seeming to be not just function, but capturing the world’s most elusive elements in tangible form.
