Item Description

Thor Thoreson - Fruit Bowl, 2002

Thor studied with Marguerite Wildenhain the summers of ’72, ’73, and ’75. 

Thor and his wife Judy have a Pottery in Door County, WI called Gills Rock Pottery.

"I first started making pottery when I was a second semester junior at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa.  I knew early on I was involved with something I would be doing for a very long time.  It was during that time I was introduced to the pottery and teachings of Marguerite Wildenhain, a Bauhaus trained potter. I would go on to study with Marguerite at her school, Pond Farm, located in Guerneville, California.  Her wisdom and inspiration had a profound effect on the direction my life would take."
