Welcome New Artist // Jeremy Briddell

“I have always been comfortable working with clay at the wheel, but have never had the discipline for functional work.  My forms, while rooted in function, are meant to be objects that both occupy a defined space and relate to their surroundings,”Jeremy Briddell says of his sculptures. “Process, formal issues of interior and exterior space, scale, and texture drive most of my creative choices and I want each piece to reflect all of the individual decisions made to create it.”
