Forty years on : Richard Bresnahan and artists of the Saint John's Pottery
Click here for this book
Richard Bresnahan, his apprentices, and volunteers built the largest wood-fired kiln in North America at Saint John's University in Collegeville, Minnesota. The Johanna Kiln accommodates 12,000 works of pottery and sculpture and is fired in the autumn. The fire is stoked for ten days and then the kiln cools for two weeks before opening. The Saint John's Pottery has embodied the Benedictine values of community, hospitality and self-sufficiency as well as the University's commitment to the integration of art and life; the preservation of the environment; the linkage between work and worship; and the celebration of diverse cultures.
