Dennis Johanson is the featured artist for February at Gallery Calapooia.

“My pottery career started in 1976 where I learned the basic techniques of throwing on the wheel, trimming, and glazing. After 2 years I started teaching beginning pottery classes at OSU.
While trying to find out how the clay body reacts to throwing fast and wet versus throwing slow and dry, I developed a process I call Porcelain Swirl. By incorporating 2 colors of porcelain, I was able to observe how clay particles move when thrown on the wheel.
Having my own studio, I am free to investigate new art possibilities and use different mediums together such as porcelain turtles swimming amongst copper seaweed on repurposed mahogany wood.
I occasionally teach pottery in my studio and enjoy giving throwing demonstrations for different public events.
My fulfillment comes from pushing the boundaries of pottery and producing pottery that others can enjoy at affordable prices.”
