Dec. 5th - 6th | 10 am to 6 pm each day

Artists Reception:
Fri., Dec. 4th | 6 pm to 9 pm

Please join Loveleaf Press in celebrating new creative output from the artists of Hook Pottery Paper, the rural studio of husband and wife team Jon Hook and Andrea Peterson. Both artists moved to the country to realize a shared dream of capturing natural textures and shapes in their art while utilizing local and renewable resources in its creation. All of the pottery is wood fired, ranging in style from the traditional to highly conceptual. The paper and printed art is made from indigenous plants and fibers. Both artists combine a refined vision with unique processes in creating one of a kind pieces. As a result each artists’ work is esteemed locally and internationally.

Hook and Peterson will visit Chicago from December 4th through 6th to display and demonstrate their wares and processes at Loveleaf Press. The exhibition/sale will include many fine pieces including a wide range of wood fired ceramic work by Jon Hook along with the handmade papers, and paper / print art works by Andrea Peterson. Both artists will be present to discuss their techniques throughout the weekend. A demonstration will take place on Saturday, 5 Dec. from 1-4pm.
