Mark Thorson

Artist's Bio

Mark Thorson grew up on a farm in northeast Kansas and attended Ottawa (KS) University, where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1979. He lives with his wife and two children in Mission, KS. His ceramic studio is located in an industrial area of Kansas City, MO.

Over the past 30 years, Mark has developed a line of functional and decorative ceramics. His work has won numerous awards and has been displayed in both solo and group exhibitions across the country. He shows at juried art shows throughout the United States.

Artist's Statement

Inspiration for these pieces comes from many sources. These botanical and geological forms play with texture and subtle colors. Nature gives unlimited sources of imagery.

My shapes are simple and somewhat organic in nature. I enjoy the spontaneous results I get, with no two pieces ever the same.

The bowls are glazed with lead free glazes and can be used in the oven, microwave, and dishwasher. The vases and vessels are glazed and are suitable for water and fresh flowers.

I hope you enjoy the pieces as much as I enjoy creating them.
