Minnesota potter Samuel Johnson’s ceramic work is designed with the utmost focus on utility because he considers the functionality of pottery as an essential and unique form of engagement that is mostly absent in other art forms. Through his robust and powerful work, Samuel expresses complex ideas and feelings that are communicated when the user explores the surface and texture of his work.
