The Founding Artists
Dan Toberer received his B.A. from the University of Nebraska and has been working in clay for 8 years. Dan and Tom started Omaha ClayWorks in April of 2000. Together they built an anagama kiln in the summer of 1998.

Thomas J. Harnack has over 15 years of clay experience both professionally and academically. He received his BA from Midland College in 1992 and M.F.A. from the University of Iowa in 1995.

In 1998, Tom studied and worked in Shigaraki, Japan - the sixth oldest ceramic center in Japan dating from the end of the twelfth century. There he experienced firing an anagama wood kiln, one of 53 in the town in Shigaraki. When he returned to Omaha, he designed and built his own 250 cu. ft. anagama kiln located near Fort Calhoun, Nebraska.
