More About the Artists
Johnson studied painting and ceramics at the University of Minnesota at Morris, then served a three-and-half year apprenticeship in pottery under Richard Bresnahan. In 2000, he studied Scandinavian Ceramic design in Copenhagen while also working at the International Ceramic Center in Skaelskor and as an assistant in private porcelain studios. In 2005, Johnson earned graduate degrees in fine art from the University of Iowa. He is currently an assistant professor of art at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University in Central Minnesota.

Gossman is the sole proprietor at Gossman Pottery in New London, Minn. He has been working as a ceramic artist since 1975. He has traveled to, lived in and exhibited in several countries around the world. A woodfired kiln is the final stage in the creation of his stoneware pieces and more recently porcelain lamps. Gossman is also a musician.
