Earth and Water 8: Ceramic Art in the St. Croix Valley
Northern Clay Center and The Phipps continue their multi-year partnership aimed at increasing the profile of ceramic artists located throughout the lower St. Croix River Valley watershed. This cross-state collaboration featured two to three ceramic artists annually in the Atrium Gallery at The Phipps. In addition, featured artists presented an artist talk prior to each opening reception and a workshop or demonstration event.
Peter Jadoonath received his BFA in painting and ceramics from Bemidji State University. Jadoonath was a 2007 Jerome Ceramic Artist Project Grant recipient and a 2009 Red Wing Collectors Society Foundation Award recipient. He recently relocated to Schafer, Minnesota where he lives and makes work. “I don't take myself too seriously,” he says, “but I do take my craft very seriously. Through my craft, I honor timelessness, tradition, ancestors, and predecessors. I strive for this by following my intuition, seeking self-realization, working hard, and gathering patience to take risks.”
