SEPTEMBER 12 - OCTOBER 10, 2014

 

 

New York, NY - The Jane Hartsook Gallery is pleased to present the New York City solo exhibition debut of Michigan-based artist, Kenyon Hansen. An artist with an active studio practice, Hansen has invented a unique approach to form over his short but adventurous career. In the last few years Hansen has rendered his practice to an elegant, vibrant and very distinctive form and surface. Hansen’s jars, coffee pots, mugs and teapots are some of the most original being made today. Sturdy and robust crockery that falls somewhere between farmhouse and modern. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

"I believe that finely crafted, thoughtfully made pottery can contribute to a renaissance of tradition and habit. My hope is that the pots I make can play a role and be a factor in a renewal of ritual. Clay allows me to play with a physical language. When I throw or hand build, I am engaged in the conversation, curiosity often pushes the dialog, while the desire to find something new guides me forward. I strive to create pottery that is both considered and balanced containing a healthy dose of spirit and care." - Kenyon Hansen
