Item: Jack Rogers Hopkins Bowl
Designer/Maker: Jack Rogers Hopkins is well known for the grand and sculptural furniture designs he created while teaching at San Diego State. After receiving a BA from the California College of Arts and Crafts and an MA from Claremont Graduate School, Hopkins started teaching at State in 1961. He taught a wide variety of courses, including drawing and composition, painting, and later, advanced furniture design. He occasionally taught ceramics classes but was described in the 1963 Ceramics: East and West catalogue as a ceramic sculptor. Stoneware pots were included in his 1958 master’s show and he exhibited sculptural objects in metal and clay throughout most of the 1960s, while giving lectures, demonstrations and workshops in pottery and jewelry.
