Hedman Pottery is nestled among the hills of western Pennsylvania. Along with his home is a complex of buildings which make up his working studio. Between the house and studio is a gallery sales room where you will find pottery on display.

At the Hedman studio, you will be able to see a variety of kilns: a salt kiln and gas fire car kiln.

The surrounding tranquility provides an atmosphere that is reflected in Donn's work.

Donn Hedman


Donn's work is best known for its combination of form and imagery. His influences are varied; many being derived from his experiences living and traveling in Africa. He is a former professor of art (ceramics) at IUP and has been working with clay for over 35 years. His ceramic art can be found in museums, art centers, and galleries throughout the United States.

Artist Statement:

For many years I’ve worked with clay, exploring its qualities and possibilities as they relate to my ideas. As my ideas evolve, so the clay adapts. There is no ultimate goal to my work but rather a continual search and in that is the joy.
