Jason Bige Burnett

Jason Bige Burnett

Jason Bige Burnett’s pieces are bold with story-telling pictures. He photographs and uses Photoshop to silkscreen the images onto a piece of clay. Still intrigued by the idea of sugar coating and how far some people will go in order to "sweeten up" a tough situation, Burnett’s ceramics always warrant a second look and an alternate interpretation

Jason Bige Burnett Artist Bio

Jason Bige Burnett earned a BFA in ceramics and BA's in both printmaking and graphic design at Western Kentucky University in 2009. Afterwards he continued his education in North Carolina for two years at Penland School of Crafts as a Core Fellow. His work has been published in numerous publications including Lark Books "500 Ceramic Sculptures" and exhibited nationally. Jason now lives and continues his studio practice in Marshall, North Carolina.

 

Jason Bige Burnett Artist Statement

My fascination begins with the vocabulary of vessels. They narrate our domestic interiors and reflect daily routines. Stained coffee cups, cracked collector plates, and precious ceramic heirlooms all have stories that are worth translating.

Through personal expression of stains, implied cracks and over refined patterns I suggest evidence of my own calamitous tales of adolescence, variations of landscape and interest in pop culture. I aspire to create fantastical vessels that celebrate vulnerability and beauty, sugarcoat life’s escapades and serve as a bridge between the real and surreal.
