a bit off center

A Bit Off Center is made up of two friends who collaborate to make functional ceramics. Both Julie Rogers and Rae Brown began wheel throwing as a hobby. After working at community studios for several years, we each bought wheels and kilns and set up studios in our homes. We approach our work from an analytical perspective with attentiveness to details. Together we make better pots than we could alone and have a lot more fun.

Jacob Herrmann

I make functional and decorative stoneware pottery. Most of my work is fired in wood burning kilns. The pots are fired from 24 hours to 92 hours where they reach maturity at about 2,400 degrees Fahrenheit. The pottery is directly exposed to flames and fly ash from the burning wood and the atmosphere of the kiln is recorded by the clay. It is these rich surfaces, laden with information and history, that captivates me. They tell a tale of metamorphosis of all the elements converging at one particular place and time.
