Wanda Henton Jackson
Wanda Henton Jackson's functional pottery is decorated with whisical elements making it both functional and decorative. Wanda also builds a pottery series with a wave form carved into or emerging from the piece as a handle or spout which is inspired by the gentle curvature of the nearby hills and the meandering Missouri River.
Wanda first discovered her love of building pottery while taking a pottery class during her undergraduate years at Kansas State University. After taking this initial class, she went on to study pottery under Yoshira Ikeda, who taught her to explore the confluence of form and surface. In addition to Yoshira Ikeda, Wanda is influenced by the work of Robin Hopper and David Shaner.
