John Preus



John Preus has been a studio potter since 1974 and he delights in making pots for daily use. Much of his work is thrown, altered and then assembled with hand built additions. John often works in a series, with form being his central interest. He is intrigued by the interplay of changing form, proportion and volume within the framework of the functional pot. Forms are generally simple, but often with active surface. Fire, glazes and chance continue to offer him unending challenges and surprises. He looks forward to the unexpected in his pots. John is a juried member of The Best of Missouri Hands.
