Position(s): Ceramics Teaching Artist
Caleb started working at BCAT as a resident artist in 2020. After two years in the resident artist position, Caleb was promoted to a full-time staff position as the Ceramics Teaching Artist. He holds a BS in geology from Slippery Rock University and studied as a potter’s apprentice to master Matt Jones of Jones Pottery Ltd., located outside of Asheville, NC in the Sandy Mush Valley. His main focus is in functional wares ranging from mugs and plates to pitchers, bottles, and large pots that can reach up to four or more feet tall. Each pot is decorated with influences from traditional Chinese brushwork and/or Carolina slip trailing. When he gets the chance, you can find Caleb in front of a wood fire kiln looking for atmospheric deposition to mussy up his pots for an organic twist on his traditional decoration.
