Artist Statement

Handcrafted studio pottery by Hank Hogan and Janet Erickson Hogan is featured in the display cases through June 1, 2010.

Born in Atlanta, Hank Hogan has been a studio potter since 2004. His functional stoneware vessels are fired in an electric or gas kiln. The vessels are wheel thrown and use a vast selection of high-fired food safe glazes for his finishes. He and his wife, Janet, work out of the MudFire Clayworks & Gallery.

Janet Erickson Hogan has a vast background in many mediums including quilting, drawing, and painting. She began pottery with husband Hank in 2004 and incorporates her skills in fabric design and drawing to create hand-built carved pieces using many different glazing techniques. Her work focuses on nature, people, and places, with a whimsical attitude.
