      " Dan Sorensen graduated from high school in Garnavillo, IA in 1964 then attended Luther College in Decorah, IA where he studied art under Dean Schwarz with a concentration in ceramics. Following graduation and with Dean’s recommendation, he enrolled at Pond Farm Pottery in Guerneville, CA where he studied under the master potter Marguerite Wildenhain. Because of Marguerite’s roots in the Bauhaus and her disciplined approach to the craft, Dan gained an appreciation for craftsmanship and the freedom to concentrate on the creative aspects of his media.

         In the fall of 1968 Dan took a position as art instructor with the Swea City Community Schools. It was there that he met his wife, Judy, a kindergarten teacher in the school system. They were married in 1969 and made their home in Swea City, IA where they raised three children. It was in this home (with a stone foundation) that Stone Cellar Pottery was born and for 35 years Dan balanced a career as a teacher and a studio potter. He retired from teaching in 2003 and now devotes his time to making pottery. Dan has exhibited in numerous shows, most recently being the “Ripples Exhibit” which was shown in 3 venues in the United States as a tribute to Marguerite Wildenhain. His work is in the collection of the MacNider Museum in Mason City, IA, the Pond Farm Collection at Luther College, and many private collections."
