Jere Lykins, Clay and Mixed Media Artist


Jere Lykins

I have been working with clay since 1967, when I was an undergraduate student. Over the years I have made pottery, wall reliefs and sculpture. I believe that "technique serves idea", so if I have an idea that needs to be expressed with a particular medium, or combination of media or materials, I use whatever is necessary. An example would be the use of photographic images on ceramic objects.

Over the years I have explored many ideas and ways to express those ideas. To the left, in the "slide show", you can see some of the work I have created over the years. If you want to know about my career history, click on the "Resume" link on this page.
