From Text Panel:
Born into a well-known family of Southern potters, Edwin Meaders is the youngest son of Arie and Cheever Meaders. Although he was involved with other family members in potter production throughout his early life, Edwin did not become a full-time potter until about 1980.
Edwin is recognized especially for his roosters. The choice of subject was influenced by his mother's works, but Edwin developed his own approach to making them.
