John Hansen found his affinity for clay while a student at the University of Wisconsin. John has worked in theatre and business but pottery has been a constant thread in his life. He started Mudslingers in 1998 after many years of teaching in other programs. In addition to his extensive experience, John brings his infamous sense of humor to class, resulting in fun and enlightening times. His work has been exhibited in Europe and sold nationally.
