Al Jaeger

Juried Member Since 1982

My woods, fields, garden, and people translate into the lines, tones, textures, shapes, and colors of these clay works. The clays incorporate sand, gravel, feldspar, and coffee grounds. Glazes mostly defer to the wood fire kiln which magically (and with hard work) brings everything together. The kiln, in my pasture, is cooperatively designed, build, and operated by the NH Potters Guild.

I juried into the League of NH Craftsmen in the early 1970s, became a clay juror in the early 1980s, and joined the Board of Standards in the mid 1990s. In 1995 I created the BFA Program in Ceramics at the NH Institute of Art.

My work can be found in the Currier Museum of Art, at the NH State Council on the Arts, and in corporate and private collections. I am represented by Kelley-Stelling Contemporaries in Manchester and am honored to be designated a New Hampshire “Living Treasure.”
