Jeremy Briddell // Cut Charger (detail)
25 inch diameter
Cone 5 terra cotta, wheel thrown and altered, crater glazed


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.

Briddell completed his undergraduate studies at The Kansas City Art Institute with Victor Babu and George Timmock, and was a student during Ken Ferguson’s final three years of teaching. He received an MFA from Arizona State University in 2000, and spent time as a studio assistant for John Balistreri, Ken Ferguson, and Jun Kaneko.  He currently resides in Phoenix, Arizona.
