Hanna grew up in Floyd, VA and is currently living in Portland, OR. She pushes the limits of the material, piercing her wheel thrown forms with careful attention to how the piece may alter under the high heat of the firing. Often her work will slump, acquiring an entirely organic movement that occurs only by nature.
Hanna’s work is a metaphor to life’s unpredictable circumstances. Her fragile forms reveal, with sincere intention, how uncertainties in life most often become something greater than planned.
