Jack Goolsby Ceramics



My work is figurative clay. It started off with an interest in gargoyles and grotesques on the sides of Gothic churches and buildings. The idea of interpreting them in clay intrigued me. The more I researched gargoyles, other pottery figures drew my attention with their form and expressiveness. Pre-Columbian Peruvian pottery, Amlash pottery, Aegean maritime style, Pacific Oceanic, African ceramics and sculpture, and Pacific northwest Indian carvings all have attributes that I incorporate in my work. If I see something I like I appropriate it.
