Jake Boggs makes work that is a fusion of surface and form. He draws inspiration from the vast well of ceramic history and interprets how past potters approached the vessel as a pictorial substrate. While engaging in mark making he draws from a plethora of observed compositions found in the spaces he inhabits.

Jake Boggs earned an MFA from the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa and a BFA from Eastern Kentucky University, both in ceramics. He is currently the Ceramics Studio Coordinator at the Donkey Mill Art Center in Holualoa, Hawai’i, and serves on the board of Hawai’i Craftsmen, a statewide non-profit that works to enrich the community through contemporary craft.
