About the Curator
Jake Boggs is a lecturer in the UHM Ceramics Area as well as an ongoing instructor at the Hawai‘i Potters Guild. He holds a BFA from Eastern Kentucky University and MFA from UH Mānoa. His interest in ceramics has taken him to the Ecuadorian Amazon, Jingdezhen City in The Peoples Republic of China, Jeju Island of South Korea, and his home culture in Appalachia where he sources traditional and contemporary forms as creative influence. He exhibits his work widely across the United States, is active in the local chapter of the Empty Bowls philanthropy, and keeps an active and evolving studio practice in Mānoa. His interest in the ceramic arts, as well as education, propel him forward in shaping the local ceramics community.
