Cheerful Surfaces Workshop with Jason Burnett

“Cheerful surfaces and simple forms are an intentional invitation to engage my pottery. I compose layers of color and pattern, bringing together stained and burnished surfaces to suggest an emotional duality between happiness and despair.”
-Jason Bige Burnett
