Gallery Note: We are saddened to report the passing of Ken Keppers. He was passionate and knowledgeable about clay and will be missed. His wife and partner for many years, Judith, continues the pottery near Turtle Lake.
Ken grew up gardening. He read Silent Spring and Small is Beautiful in high school, and decided to pursue gardening without chemicals on a small scale. After receiving a degree in art, he worked, saved money, bought land, carved out a garden space, and built a pottery studio. He prefers human power – a treadle pottery wheel or a hand cultivator. His focus is on local whether it is materials for pottery or marketing his wares and produce.
