Thomas Baugnet has been a professional potter for the better part of twenty-five years.  Upon taking a ceramics class his senior year at the University of Wisconsin/Green Bay, his career focus became pottery.  Clay is in his blood!  He is a gifted craftsman, which is evident in his wheel work and attention to detail.

Jill’s work as a potter began with Thomas’ encouragement and guidance.  Having earned a degree from Northern Michigan University in the home and fine arts, working with clay was a fit!  Her focus at present is hand building and working with forms.  Jill’s artistic flair guarantees something unique and perhaps a little unusual as a result.

Jill and Thomas love collaborating on ideas and techniques, resulting in greater creative development in their work together since 2003.

The couple owns and operates Open Wings Gallery in Munising, Michigan which they opened in 2007 after completely renovating the building.

They reside on their farmstead just outside of Munising where they grow organic vegetables & fruit, tend chickens, and create in their home studio.
