Jake Johnson's Profile
My name is Jake Johnson, and I am located in Waynesboro, Virginia where I make work and live with my wife and web manager, Katie. My work is mostly functional. I love making pieces that are unique and also affordable for lots of people. I try to give my work a sense of character and personality. I earned an MFA in ceramics from Penn State, exhibit nationally, and sell my work at art fairs, through galleries, and online. This is a full-time job for me.
How do I make this stuff?
I throw everything on the wheel, except for some trays and similar things that I make from slabs. I fire primarily in a in electric kilns these days. All of my glazes are food-safe and lead-free. I use both porcelain and stoneware.
