Collection: Will Swanson

Harris, MN

Will Swanson uses stoneware and porcelain clays to create dinnerware, baking and serving dishes, vases, and other useful pots for the kitchen and table. His pots are individually wheel-thrown, and often are altered or assembled from wheel-thrown parts. In all his work, Swanson wants to make pots that attain a satisfying simplicity while allowing the character of the earth materials and the hand-making process to be evident. Swanson shares his studio with his wife Janel Jacobson and together they welcome potters and visitors to the annual St. Croix Valley Pottery Tour.
