About the Moderator
David JP Hooker lives and works in the greater Chicago area, where he is an artist and professor at Wheaton College. He received an M.F.A. in Ceramics from Kent State University and a B.A. in English from Furman University. His artistic practice explores a variety of media, but pottery remains at the heart of his practice. His works have been exhibited both nationally and internationally, including the Guilford Arts Center in Connecticut, Pottery Northwest in Seattle, the Third Annual Triennial of Silicate Arts in Hungary, and the 2016 International Cultural Fair in Dunhuang, China. When David is not freaking out over deadlines, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Elaine, his children Abbey and Samuel, his dog, Mac, and his cat, Evee. He also enjoys baseball, BBQ, and tennis—not necessarily in that order.
