BIO

Jake was “borned and raised” in the mountains of Appalachia where he spent most of his time traipsing around the hills looking for wild things. After some time he left his old Kentucky home and moved to O’ahu, Hawai’i where he is currently a lecturer at The University of Hawai’i at Mānoa. Jake is an avid traveler and has curiously ventured around the globe researching and studying various ceramic traditions in hopes to distill that information into his art practice. When he is not traveling or making art he enjoys long hikes in secluded places and tending to his plants in the garden. 

STATEMENT

My work is a reflection of my curiosities, a synthesis of past and present. My process distills topics from the arts, sciences, and humanities, breaks them down into a visual language and imbues these signs onto the surface of volumetric forms. Ceramic artifacts are commonly used to identify past cultures, dating back many thousands of years. After time and the elements erased these ancient peoples, the ceramic remained unchanged. Without the lasting quality of ceramic, humanity would have lost much of its ancestral knowledge. I am drawn to the idea that my work will out live my own body, my family, my culture, and that the art, in the far distant future, will serve as a reminder of this time and place.
