Megan Mitchell
I am a full-time ceramic artist residing in Kimball, Minnesota, Originally from New Hampshire. I hold a BA in painting and printmaking from Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota. In 2012, I received an MFA in ceramics at Utah State Univeristy. Prior to graduate school, I worked as an apprentice at Whitefish Pottery in Whitefish Montana and the Hoyman-Browe Studio in Ukiah California. From 2012- 2013, I was a resident artist at Red Lodge Clay Center in Red Lodge, Montana, and from 2013 - 2015, I was a visiting professor of ceramics at Marlboro College in Vermont. Besides my studio work, I currently teach classes at Minneapolis Community and Technical College.

JD Jorgenson
I deeply believe that working with native clay, cultivates conversations and relationships between the material and others. I strive in my process to understand the material for what it is through its strengths and limitations. There are stones, feldspar, and other minerals in the clays that make themselves known through the making and firing process, which I believe adds beauty. My work is often a reflection of the source material. The true beauty is the clay itself, unglazed and raw interacting with fire, charcoal, and atmosphere in the kiln.

Mugs, cups, bowls and small plates are $10, lidded boxes and medium bowls are $12, and plates and vases are $15.
