Joanne Brice: Joanne started Blossom Hill Crafts in 1970 with a passion for the craft and a desire to create community. She is often heard saying “I have always viewed our pottery studio as a community of people rather than a business. It’s a vehicle for sharing and creating rather than a way to achieve personal success.” Over the last 40 plus years Joanne has taught thousands of people to make pottery and has been central to the career of countless professional and semi professional potters.
David Johanson: David’s journey with clay began at Augustana College in Sioux Falls, SD under the tutelage of Professor Gerry Punt. After college, he directed and developed an art program for inner-city children and teenagers in inner-city Cleveland, Ohio. Through this experience, he developed a deep commitment to building community via the arts. In 2007, David’s love for clay and commitment to building community came together and he became the co-owner Blossom Hill Crafts Pottery School.
