Project Description

Kendall Jones

I am a figurative ceramic sculptor interested in surreal human and animal forms.

I use a creative process taught to me by my friend and mentor Sara Swink. The process utilizes college work, and draws out subconscious imagery to be synthesized and manifested in three-dimensions. Lately, I’ve been privileged to participate in several wood firings at East Creek Anagama. I love the surrender required of atmospheric firings, and the ethereal works of art co-created by my own hands and breath of the kiln gods.

My work is also inspired by my shamanic spiritual practice, which I describe as a cross between meditation and lucid dreaming. Images and animals come to me in this trance-like state and it’s my job to capture them and translate them into clay.
