About the artist
Born in Eau Claire, WI, Evan travelled north to eventually settle in Cornucopia, WI on Lake Superior where he now owns his own pottery shop. He's been avidly creating pottery for fourteen years going on forty. In his studio at home, Evan processes clay by hand, produces all glazes from scratch, and throws his pots in a foot-powered treadle wheel he built himself. When the pots are dried and ready they're fired in a two-chambered neborigama kiln. The first chamber is gas powered, slowly heating the second chamber which is then fired with wood - each stoke a minute apart, each sliver of wood split by hand. Making gorgeous pieces of art that are functional as well as stunning is not a simple process. Come see the results for yourself and get to know this potter from the north woods. Perhaps a piece of Hestekin pottery will catch your fancy and end up on a shelf in your home!
