Hi, I'm Jon. A native of the Pacific Northwest, I took up ceramics after moving to Los Angeles in 2012. Much of my interest in the studio lies in pushing clay to its limits, using various textures - surface cracking techniques, and firing with crawl glazes - to exhibit a raw, natural aesthetic.
I'm an avid traveler, and often draw inspiration from the great outdoors. Images of the ever changing, infinite landscape of our planet - rugged peaks, undulations, whitewater, cracked desert ground - follow me home and into the ceramic studio.
In addition to the work you see on this website, much of what I do is commissioned. I'm available to collaborate and create custom pieces. Please contact me directly with any inquiries.
