Jeff Downing

 

 

Inspired by childhood memories, nature and dreams, Jeff Downing’s work seeks to invoke feelings concerning the human condition and our varied relationship to the natural world. He writes, “For as long as we have co-existed with dogs, they have provided us with a close and mysterious link to nature”. His work represents a movement of freestanding, large-scale ceramic work and is part of a great tradition of Californian ceramics. Downing teaches sculpture at San Francisco State University.
