Janel Jacobson
Harris, Minnesota

Janel has been self-employed since graduation from Luther College with a B.A. in Art in 1972. Further studies were had during three summers with Marguerite Wildenhain at Pond Farm Pottery in the 1970’s. A long-nurtured love of making useful stoneware pots, as well as more decorative carved porcelain pieces, filled her life for the first twenty-five years as a potter. Then followed a twenty-year pursuit of carving small sculpture from wood that was occasionally punctuated by short periods of making pots. She is now enjoying her full-time return to making pottery that is useful in daily life. In 1975 she established Sunrise Pottery in Sunrise, Minnesota where you will now find Janel Jacobson and Will Swanson making pottery together.
