Will Swanson fashions stoneware clay into useful pots to be experienced, as he says, “ through the simple, aesthetic pleasures of everyday use. “
Will’s education includes a BA in Social Welfare and an MA in Design from the University of Minnesota. His inspiration to make a life as a maker of pottery sprang from being intrigued by using handmade pottery.
Will chooses to make pots that might attain a “satisfying simplicity” while allowing the character of the earth materials and the hand-making process to be evident. He reflects that the use and perhaps the meaning of any pot is projected onto it by the user…long after it leaves the hands of the potter.
