Jerry Bennett is a Philadelphia based clay and screen-printing artist. His piece “Out of Time and Patience, (featured below) was part of a group show at the Northern Clay Center. A graduate from Indiana University with a M.F.A in Ceramics, He says of his work “It is my aspiration as an artist to create objects with a strong visual identity that reflects functionality, but are more than just a vessel. Through use of color, texture and movement, my work shows an evolution, which I hope, results in a straightforward and graceful statement.”
