Bob Meier, owner and operator of Doe Ridge Pottery in Boone, NC began his career almost by accident. A transplant originally from Philadelphia, PA, Bob moved to Boone after his military service in 1973 to complete his education at Appalachian State University in Technical Education, with concentrations in graphic arts, drafting and technical illustration, and crafts. “My first semester, I took a class in pottery/ceramics mostly to fill a spot in my schedule. It was love at first sight.

While finishing his Bachelor and Masters degrees at A.S.U., Bob continued to extend his interest in clay by taking all the course work offered at A.S.U. including a course with Ron Probst. He also attended several local workshops, including one in business practices for craftspeople with Herb Cohen and Jose´ Fumero. He worked during this period for two and a half years for potter Lucy Hamilton in Newland, NC.

Bob also became involved in the Hands Crafts Gallery in Boone, helping establish Hands as the Boone area’s first cooperative gallery in 1975 as one of its charter members. He is a past member of Hands’ Board of Directors and was president for four year-long terms.

Bob became a member of Blue Ridge Hearthside Crafts in 1978, and a member of the Southern Highlands Craft Guild in 1983. He established his own studio and gallery on King Street in Boone in 1988 after working in a home studio from 1978 to 1988. His gallery, working and teaching studio, have been maintained on King Street ever since.
