Jason Hinojosa, Potter
The actual art of the craft is what inspires me. In a world of “Made in China” I have a deep appreciation for handcrafted works of art. It takes knowledge, time and energy when creating something by hand. It is that in which we can reclaim from our ancestors, the skills to take raw materials and create something that can bring joy or happiness to our family, friends and the people in our community.
My artwork attempts to bring out some form of happiness in people. Whether it be a stand alone piece like a vase or functional for day to day use such as a coffee mug it is to elicit a feeling of happiness.
