Jan Arbogast began her study of ceramics at Indiana University under the direction of eminent Indiana potter, Karl Martz, a master of glaze formulation and decorative techniques. His instruction in the art and techniques of studio pottery is the foundation of her work today. While at IU she also studied with visiting Professor Hiroshi Seto of Mashiko, Japan, from whom she learned a love of throwing on the wheel. Her own work pays homage to the timeless ceramic traditions of the Far East, North Africa and ancient America, while still being uniquely her own. Her attachment to the craft of pottery comes from the doing of it, from the harmonious and rhythmic nature of the process. Her artistic intention is to create elegant forms and happy glazes; always something new and something timeless.
Jan is a juried member of the Indiana Artisan Program and teaches Ceramics classes to adults and children at Ivy Tech’s Center for Lifelong Learning.
