Born and raised in Minnesota, potter Jennie Johnsrud received a studio art degree from St. Olaf College and continued her training as an apprentice in the pottery at the Rochester Folk Art Guild in New York. After 20 years of practice, she began selling her work full time just a few years ago in her home of Santa Fe, New Mexico. The business was named Modern Folk Ware to reflect the mingei line of training she received and admired, her simple and clean forms honoring her present High Desert environs as well as her Scandinavian heritage.
