Tom Jaszczak

In a barn-style pottery studio next to a farmhouse in Shafer, MN, Tom Jaszcak creates a bridge between traditional midwestern methodologies and his own nuanced point of view on minimalism, decoration, nuance, and process. Graphic, rugged, and wonderful to hold, each item contains memories of its derivation and path; the irregularities, scrapes, dimples, and colorations are there to tell a story. Tom is an awarded ceramics artist; he was also an Honored Maker at the White House’s Maker’s Faire during the Obama administration.

Tom’s expressive and intelligent home accessory pieces are products of a soda kiln process that results in a textured and nuanced surface—and an excellent sensory experience. The artist hand-sands all his work to give it a smooth yet sturdy finish; the interiors are glaze-lined. The look is earthen, organic, and natural.
