I met Jesse Small a year ago while at a dinner party in Kansas City. His ceramic work is rich with complexity and detail and makes one really consider the space that is shared between the viewer and the object.

Clever and quirky, one considers both the rich history of Venetian chandeliers as well as the cleverness of video games past. Color and form combined with attention to surface detail are what entice one in to examine in minute detail Jesse’s inventive ceramics.
