Thomas Hoadley was born in North Adams, MA and raised in New Hampshire. He graduated from Amherst College in 1971 with a BA in studio arts. Hoadley then attained a Master of Science in Ceramics at Illinois State University and subsequently moved to the Berkshires with his young family and established his pottery studio.
Hoadley’s colored porcelain art pottery, made with the Japanese technique of Nerikomi, is included in the collections of many public museums including the National Museum of American Art - Renwick Gallery, the Museum of Fine Arts - Boston, the Museum of Fine Arts - Philadelphia, and the White House Craft Collection (now at the Clinton Library). Hoadley is the recipient of a Massachusetts Artists Fellowship, two NEA Grants, and a Bronze Metal at the International Ceramics Festival Mino ’95, Tajimi City, Japan. His work has been exhibited widely, both nationally and internationally and has also been featured in several books on ceramics. He currently resides in Lanesborough, Mass. where he divides his time between ceramics and abstract painting.
