Mercer received his BFA in ceramics from Auburn University in Alabama. After a two-year residency at the Craftsman House Gallery in Florida, he moved back to Alabama to become the Studio Manager at The Kiln Studio. Branan has focused on a singular cup design over the past year, working to refine a form that engages the user on a visual and tactile level; finding success both at rest and in action. Visually and physically the cup’s lofty pedestal rises to the user, welcoming engagement and providing confidence in grasp. Branan finds direction in the modern realm of mid-century design. His cup is quite emphatically a cup for cup’s sake, requiring no further exploration beyond that of its physical existence. It is a well-crafted design that communicates with the user in a most direct manner.
