Being raised in New York City never stopped Eve Behar from her love of nature and especially animals. In Eve's early years, she was lucky to live next to Forest Park and loved exploring what seemed like deep woods even though Queens Boulevard was right there. Eve was also fortunate to go to summer camp and visit her grandfather at his home near the ocean to experience the outdoors away from the urban bustle. Early on, Eve discovered the arts as a way to express her creative side. With tremendous family support, trying all different forms of art from drawing to dance to acting, when Eve came upon clay, it was a done deal.
In 1991, Eve Behar took her first ceramics class in the Upper East Side of Manhattan. She continued to take classes through college and after at the many studios around the city while also being a grunt working in television production. In 1995 she went to Florence for a year to study ceramics, painting, and art history at the Studio Art Center International for which she received a Post Baccalaureate Diploma. Upon returning from Italy, Eve worked as an assistant making slip cast production work while pursuing her own clay career. In 2001, Eve once again went back to full time international study at Sheridan College in Oakville, Canada. There she spent three intensive years refining her skills and techniques and developing a body of work. Eve was very happy to accept the highest award of Best in Show at the Graduate Show of 2004. Since 2004 and returning to New York, Eve has been in various wholesale and retail shows, gallery exhibitions and featured on the Ceramics Monthly website and the cover of The Potters Council 2015 Calendar. She also is a past president of The Clay Art Guild of the Hamptons and former director of Celadon Clay Art Gallery and Shop. Eve maintains her studio practice at home in Sag Harbor, New York where she is happily potting near the beach surrounded by nature with visits from the local squirrels, chipmunks, birds and occasional deer.
