Ceramicist•Painter•Artist

About

In studying at The University of Brighton on 3D Design and Craft Jack has developed a broad range of skills in various mediums but predominantly works in ceramics. Taught from an early age Jack begun working with clay in secondary school, creating ambitious large scaled hollow sculptures, developing his passion for the material. Jack is also a very keen painter and illustrator, and the two approaches often overlap and intertwine in his experimental artistic practise.

Jack seeks to create emotive work thats brings focus upon conservational issues that are of an often ignored and complex nature. Subtle hints are incorporated to address greater problematic issues in the world in which we live today such as animal welfare concerns, pollution and climatic change.  Through hand building hollow sculptures using the mediums of decorative slips, glaze and lustres these are communicated and use a way of conversing a deeper message. His work ultimately is set as a reminder but equally as important a celebration of the beauty of the animals that grace our Earth.

It excites me to create work that seeks to highlight often difficult overlooked situations visually communicating them in a different yet understandable manner.’

Jack works in his studio based at Rosehill Workshops in Brighton, East Sussex, England and stocks his workout throughout the UK.
