Jeff Campana, 2011–2012 Anonymous Fellow, 2012–2013 Windgate Fellow
summer resident 2010, long-term resident 2011–2013

Jeff Campana exhibits work nationally and internationally. His deconstructed/reconstructed functional pottery forms have received national attention in several Ceramics Monthly features. Since receiving his MFA at Indiana University Bloomington in 2008, he has participated in more than 50 exhibitions, and regularly gives public lectures and workshops regionally. He received his BFA in Ceramics from the University of Wisconsin Whitewater in 2004.

Jeff has been a ceramics technician at Bennington College in Vermont, as well as visiting artist and lecturer at the University of Louisville and adjunct professor at Indiana University Southeast in New Albany. Jeff was a summer resident in 2010, returned to the Bray in the fall of 2011 as the Anonymous Fellow and in 2012–2013 received a Windgate Fellowship.

“My method of making is sustained by my desire to develop a virtuosic touch in clay.  When pieces are dissected for decoration, cross-sections are examined, critiqued, noted, and refined. It is my preference for conspicuous labor and skill that drives me to these challenging and often risky processes.”
