Jason Bohnert makes utilitarian thrown stoneware vessels using atmospheric firings in a hybrid gas/wood/soda kiln (08/2017). Surface techniques include both glazed and unglazed surfaces.   

Bohnert has traveled extensively in China reflected in the formal aspects of his work. Over the years, he has explored the miniature scale of the Yixing teapot while at the same time working on a larger scale, making decorative urns, jars, and boxes, inspired by early Tang and Song Dynasty pieces.

Bohnert has taught throughout his career.
