Ronan Kyle Peterson grew up in Poplar, NC, deep in the mountains of western North Carolina. He received a BA degree in Anthropology, with a minor in Folklore from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1996. His interest in folklore led him to John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC, where he began taking classes in ceramics and other media.  Currently, Peterson maintains Nine Toes Pottery, a ceramics studio in Chapel Hill, NC, which produces highly decorative and functional earthenware vessels. His work is drawn from processes of growth and decay in the natural world and translated into a ceramic comic book interpretation of both real and imagined phenomena.
