Jason Bohnert was born in Louisville, Kentucky and now resides in Flagstaff, Arizona. He make pots from his home studio full time and teach ceramics part time at Coconino Community College and Northern Arizona University.When he's not making pots he enjoy hiking with his dogs, climbing, mountain biking, and vegetarian cooking.
The exploration of form and surface within my work is an expression of cross cultural contemporary ceramics, strongly influenced by traditional pottery techniques. Experiences in nature and my study abroad give me endless inspiration. Each design is influenced by my experiences apprenticing in China, through the JCI-WVU International Academy of Ceramic Art, through my extended residency in the Penland area at the Energy Xchange, and in my graduate studies at West Virginia University.
