Jason Hess, Ceramics
Ceramic artist Jason Hess uses a variety of clay materials, firing his pieces, generally unglazed, in a wood burning kiln. His work is either utilitarian or refers to utility in form. In his more sculptural work, he seeks to group pieces that evoke characters relating to one another.
Jason holds an MFA in ceramics from Utah State University and is currently a professor of art at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. His ceramic art has been featured in many exhibitions nationally and internationally. The artist has participated in residencies at Montana’s Archie Bray Foundation and at The Pottery Workshop in Jingdezhen, China.
