OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWith more than 30 years experience in visual media, Marc Jenesel is a graphic artist and animator but dedicates every available moment for his passion creating Raku. His signature pots, ‘Glow Pots’, truly glow from the interior and the first response seeing them in person is, “Is there a candle in there?”.

No candles, trick lighting or any other  light sources are added to make Marc’s Glow Pots glow.   They are beautifully created by an accomplished potter, Marc Jenesel, then fired at 1800 degrees, removed from the kiln at their maximum temperature, cooled and embellished with layers of copper leaf which catch the ambient light fork a beautiful soft glow.  Before bringing his finished products to Hunter-Wolff Gallery, there are a number of steps in between, quality control checks are made and only perfect pots are delivered. The waiting is well worth it.

Through his science background and experience, he is able to obtain the range of textures and glaze colors using chemistry and post-firing reduction. He explains, “Much of my education is in the sciences. I believe art and science run parallel. As science has become more abstract and out there, so has art. I think a well-rounded education in the arts requires some study of the sciences.” His results are remarkable and formulated for rich color and texture before they are made available to collectors. Stop in and visit Hunter-Wolff Gallery in Old Colorado City, Colorado Springs, and discover how Marc creates Raku pottery like no other potter.
