ROGER ALLEN

Founder 1971-2019

We wouldn't exist today if it weren't for the amazing human, and StarKeeper, who was Roger Allen. Though his passing in 2019 brought changes to our daily lives and the community he started, we carry on his legacy through the pottery studio he started back in 1971. Roger's establishment of our production pottery studio led to the creation of The StarKeeper, our signature pottery series. Through this studio and the Chicken Farm Art Center, Roger and the artists he collaborated, trained, and employed over the years developed all the colorful ceramics we continue to create today.
