For those of you who have not been out to the farm and studio, Hook Pottery Paper is a fine arts and craft studio in northwest Indiana run by husband and wife team Jon Hook and Andrea Peterson. These two artists who have moved to the country will visit the city for an exclusive weekend to demonstrate how they capture elegant natural textures and shapes to create and influence their work.

Focusing on local and renewable resources, they fire all the pottery with wood and make many handmade papers from indigenous plants and fibers.

During this event, wood-fired pottery including serving dishes, vases and unique teapots made by Jon Hook will be featured. Handmade papers from natural fibers and unique stationery as well as fine paper/print artworks by Andrea Peterson will be available. They will be present to discuss and demonstrate their techniques throughout the weekend.
