Pearl Hansen

Landscapes or Pearlscapes

A native of northeast Nebraska, Pearl Hansen resides on her farm outside of Wayne. Pearl is newly retired following a wonderful career teaching at Wayne State College in the Department of Art and Design. She earned her undergraduate degree in art education at Wayne State College, Masters in Sculpture from Kansas State, and a Ph. D. from University of Nebraska, Lincoln. Her small farm is where the landscape serves as inspiration for her work. Pearl likes to take the roads less traveled so she is quite familiar with most back roads of northeast Nebraska where not as many people go. Pearl is just finishing a new studio on her farm and looks forward to the artwork that lies ahead.

Leroy von Glan

Current Work 

Leroy specializes in ceramic object creation because of the unpredictable possibilities involved in the construction and glazing of a pottery piece. Clay has been a part of human existence for thousands of years, yet the fresh and new of it is always there when he sits down at a wheel.

A self-described “thing-maker in clay,” Leroy considers ceramics to be both the simplest and most complex of any art medium. He describes the simplicity to its elemental nature – earth and fire, while its complexity is attributed to understanding the piece in balance, form, color, and touch.
