Matt Jones

American, b. 1971

Matt Jones established Jones Pottery with his wife Christine in 1998 in the Big Sandy Mush section of Leicester, NC. Jones uses local clays, traditional forms and glazes, and a wood-fired kiln. Many of his forms reference the crocks, jars, and jugs of 19th century American traditions. Using local materials and decorative traditions, Matt’s work pays homage to a time when pottery played an important role in survival. Jones work is distinguished by skilled and imaginative slip-trailed and brush decorations, including precisely drawn plants, animals, abstract patterns, and most recently, verbal statements. Jones studied at Earlham College in Richmond, IN, and apprenticed with Todd Piker (CT) and Mark Hewitt (NC).
