Potter/sculptor Jim Danisch has been making ceramic art since 1963. He now lives and works on the Lost Coast of California, somewhere between Petrolia and Honeydew, where he established a studio after spending nine years in Nepal. While in Nepal, he advised traditional potters on surviving the confusion of the modern world, introducing appropriate technology for glazed ceramics, and training potters to set up their own workshops. In 1983 he taught at Ventura College, in Ventura, California, and shortly after was artist-in-residence at the Ojai Foundation.
Often experimental, Danisch has explored the possibilities of the medium - from teacups to monumental architectural sculpture - in his own work.
