Jono Robbins - St. Louis
I grew up in St. Louis, and went to Ladue Horton Watkins High School. There I became hooked on ceramics. This love sent me to Alfred University where I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts, as well as a New York State Teaching Degree. Recently I have moved back to St. Louis and make my work out of a studio in Webster. I spend my summers in Connecticut teaching ceramics at Bucks Rock Camp. Currently I am a substitute teacher for several districts, and teach a ceramic night class at Ladue Horton Watkins High School. My sculptures tend to be either figurative, or architectural, and are inspired from the arts of many different cultures. I found my way into ceramics through learning traditional functional ceramic processes. Currently I try and make my functional objects reference to other things, like my sculptures do. In my functional work I have been working lately with rubber duck’s, chess pieces, hammers, and diamond plate. My process involves hand building thrown, and slips cast elements together. Currently I am working on a series of sculptures based on skeletons of horned animals.
