Reared on a farm in North Dakota, he graduated from Saint Johns University in Collegeville, Minnesota, and apprenticed as a potter in Japan. Returning to Saint Johns, where he is an artist in residence, he built a massive wood-burning kiln, which, with its innovative flame flues and water channels, dwarfs all other North American kilns.

By digging his own clay, using local seeds and hulls as glazing materials, and firing with deadfall, Bresnahan also practices a brand of environmentalism worthy of his Benedictine surroundings.
