Jacob Monroe

Ceramist

Currently based in Eugene, Oregon.

Monroeclay.com is an online platform with the sole purpose to represent and exhibit works made by the ceramist Jacob Monroe.  Jacob is an emerging artist who grew up in rural Idaho and later in Boise, Idaho. He then apprenticed in the outer Boroughs of New Jersey bordering Philadelphia in 2014 and later received a BFA in ceramics from the University of Montana. He is currently a long-term resident at Clay Space in Eugene, Oregon. Monroe's artwork takes influence from 15-16th century dutch textiles and themes of place found in woodblock prints from the same ara. Combining these influences with imagery of his surroundings, Monroe explores functional wares made with a combination of techniques grounded in history and digital processes of the Anthropocene.
