John Littleton and Kate Vogel’s collaboration began shortly after they met at the University of Wisconsin Madison. Since 1979 they have lived in the vibrant Toe River Arts community that surrounds Penland School in the mountains of Western North Carolina.

Their art has taken many directions over the years and at the core of it all is their collaboration and shared lives. Their creations communicate and record their interrelationship with the world, creating powerful works from whimsical to introspective.

“Our years of collaboration have been a journey of discovery: creating pieces together, working to make the sculptures unfold and evolve, and dreaming of the next piece. Our ideas are generated by the flow of making and our shared curiosity and wonder of the world (and people) around us—how it works, changes, and evolves. Collaboration brings our individual sensibilities together to generate something neither of us would have made alone.”

John and Kate lecture at art museums and universities, and have taught at Penland School of Crafts. Their work is in numerous public and private collections in the United States, and throughout the world. They have been included in articles in The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Christian Science Monitor, CBS Sunday Morning and NC Weekend UNCTV.
