Logan Hunter and Hannah May's Profile

About

We are Logan Hunter & Hannah May,young potters working together in central AR.

We each received our undergraduate BA degree from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in 2012 and primarily work with atmospheric firings in wood. Logan built UALR's first wood fired kiln that we fired together during undergrad where we met.

Now we work at home in our shared studio. Our wood fired work is currently being fired at Stephen Driver's property a few hours north of us, while we are preparing our property for kiln building. Electric firings to cone 6 are done in our home studio kiln. We are working with a porcelain clay body and begin most pieces on the wheel and then alter and decorate them.

Inspiration comes from international food rituals, historical and modern vessels, and the generations of potters who have preceded us. Logan's work is reminiscent of primitive, minimalist, traditional, and Scandinavian styles and forms. He carves paddles to use as a mark making tool and draws directly onto the pot to create a slip inlay. I (Hannah) look to Victorian fashion, Indian patterns, and all western traditions of tea for inspiration. The work incorporates slip trailing in Victorian and Indian patterns and forms inspired by both, as well.
