Modern Folk Ware is the work of studio potter Jennie Johnsrud. Born and raised in Minnesota, Jennie 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. The years since have been spent in Santa Fe, New Mexico continuing her craft, raising her son, and soaking up the sunlight of the Southwest.

Each piece is thrown by hand on the wheel and fired in an electric kiln at her home studio.
