Jack Stuart grew up in Dodge City, Kansas, and graduated from Dodge City High School. While in high school, he took his first sculpture class. His love for sculpture and ceramics grew from that first class and has continued for forty years.
Jack uses the potter’s wheel to make his functional pieces, but most of his work is hand built. He will often embellish his hand built pieces with textures, natural objects, beads, special stains or glazes, and sees a face in everything. His family and friends are his greatest supporters and they all claim to have the largest collection of “Jack Art.”
He hopes you enjoy looking at and touching his art as much as he enjoys producing it. Jack has been heard to say, “touch it, it’s only dirt,” but he has certainly done wonders with “dirt.”
