The UAF Student Ceramic Art Guild (SCAG) will be hosting visiting artist, Kenyon Hansen this upcoming week from Nov. 11-13. Hansen is a ceramic potter and has landed the cover of Ceramics Monthly magazine as an emerging artist. His work focuses on utilitarian pieces such as mugs, pots, bowls and other functional vessels. The up-and-coming artist has been all over the country and worked in different apprenticeships, honing his craft.

In September, Hansen’s work was showcased in a solo exhibit at the Harstook Gallery at Greenwich House Pottery in New York City. The exhibit’s description read, “Hansen’s jars, coffee pots, mugs and teapots are some of the most original being made today.”

Hansen is currently an adjunct ceramics instructor teaching ceramic design at Finlandia University in Hancock, Mich.

Hansen will be in the UAF ceramics studio performing demonstrations and workshops that are open to the public Thursday, Nov. 12 and Friday, Nov. 13. He will conclude his visit with an artist talk from 7-8 p.m. on Nov. 13.
