Gift Shop Featured Artist – Jeff Lounsbury

I have been involved with the Ingersoll Creative Art Centre on and off for 35 years. During this time I had several exhibitions and taught many classes in clay work. Working with clay has provided me with a much needed counterpoint to a career in the mental health field.

There have been several long hiatus in my involvement with clay. Currently I am teaching hand building with Clay classes at ICAC. I always get creatively stimulated when I teach and this time is no exception. I feel that there is a strong organic component to my work. Often I will use something from the natural world as a jumping off point be it a seashell, a fruit, a bone or seed casings.I also feel that there is a strong architectural influence to my work.

My inspirations run from Georgia Okeefe and Hans Coper to mid century Danish Ceramics and Nigerian Tribal pottery.

Currently I am working on large coiled vessels. I love the hands on time with the clay. Rolling, pinching, Kneading, scraping, burnishing. This is very time consuming but it gets me into many adventures in my head. I sometimes feel that the vessel I am creating is filled with all with all these thoughts which influence the nature of the work in a subtle interplay that shapes the final product.
