About The Store

As part of Contemporary Craft’s mission, our goal is to support nationally recognized craft artists, as well as new and emerging talent. The CC Store represents over 150 artists nationwide, offering handmade, one-of-a-kind art pieces in ceramic, fiber, glass, jewelry, metal, mixed media, paper, wood, and furniture.

Each of these pieces has spent countless hours in the hands of an artist before reaching us. When you purchase work at Contemporary Craft, you are directly  supporting the livelihood of a working artist and helping to advance the economic ecosystem of the craft community.

 

Janet Krieger Artist Spotlight

Featured Artist: Kenyon Hansen

Ceramic Artist Kenyon Hansen is a full-time studio potter and educator in the Keweenaw Peninsula. Inspired by everyday life, patchwork quilts and patterns found in nature, he hopes his work both contributes to the field of craft and elevates the everyday experience. Kenyon’s soda fired porcelain and stoneware clay pottery has been exhibited nationally and internationally and can be found in homes all over the world.

“The pulse of my practice lies in the rhythm of making and through repetition the work evolves, changing slowly in response to each firing cycle. Tactile and visual consideration and slowing down are key to this process.”

Janet Krieger was a painter, printmaker, ceramicist, and
long-time supporter of CC. In tribute to her artistic career and desire to support working artists, this rotating spotlight features the work of a professional craft artist. Gift of Karen Krieger and Karl Krieger.
