Jana John


Showkitty Pottery
2441 Blvd. Napoleon
Louisville, KY 40205

Jana John's whimsical, hand built, clay masks, platters, and more are inspired by her love of cats and appreciation of women. Many of her pieces reflect one of these themes. Bright colors and a zany sense of humor are hallmarks of her wall hangings, platters, spoon rests, pins, ornaments and garden stakes.

Working out of her studio at home, Jana hand-builds pottery, both decorative and functional, using terra cotta clay.  She uses slab construction, rolling out the clay with a rolling pin and cutting out shapes freehand.
