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'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.
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.
