Jim took up ceramics in 2018 because he felt a strong need to create. There is an art studio in Driggs, Idaho that has pottery classes, and he had one, two hour lesson. How to center the clay. And also a two hour hand building class. Hundreds of charity soup bowls have been built over the next four years in Idaho and Tulsa.
Jim currently belongs to Teton Arts Council studio in Driggs, Idaho as well as Waterworks Studio in Tulsa, Oklahoma. His ceramics are now being shown at 302 Art in Broken Arrow and Hummingbird Fine Arts in Tulsa.
Not having a formal and extensive art training has given Jim a unique free style and final presentation that we hope you will find unique and inspiring as well.
I knew at my first lesson I was going to like ceramics as my art calling. It's certainly not easy, but practice and learning from others is very necessary. Practice is my "secret weapon"!
