MEET JEFFREY JONES!

Jeffrey Jones was our judge for Draw Pierce City 2018. He will be demonstrating sculpting at the 10th Annual Pierce City Arts Festival on April 21, 2018 at Jolly Mill Park.


Born in 1961, Jeffrey has been a working artist for over 30 years, with extensive experience as a production potter and commercial sculptor for the gift, architec- tural ornament, and toy industries. 

He established his own pottery studio in 1986, but worked full-time as a production potter for Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO until the mid-1990s. During this time, he was also sculpting prototypes for the gift and architectural ornament industries.

Employed as a staff sculptor for McFarlane Toys from 2000-2005, he sculpted action figures for many of the most popular movie properties such as the Terminator
and The Matrix, as well as dozens of other properties in the movie, television, gaming, music, and sports genres. After McFarlane, Jeffrey sculpted prototypes for several other toy companies, producing toys and collectible figures for popular properties such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Resident Evil, Pirates of the Carribean, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate Atlantis, Sin City, Child's Play, 
among many others.

That experience is a powerful tool with which Jeffrey develops his own concepts and ideas into fine sculptural works under his own name.  

Jeffrey and his wife own The Clay Cup - A Coffee Pottery in Neosho, Missouri, where he teaches as well as creates his pottery and exquisite figurative sculptures in clay. 

The Clay Cup and studio are open to the public.

“I have devoted a huge portion of my life to clay that has been transformed by the fire of a kiln, resurrecting the plastic medium into a state not far-removed from its earlier form as a rock formation. Modeled directly by my hands, these clay sculptures emerge from the dust of the earth combined with water and bound by fire, becoming entities whose visual essence for that moment is captured permanently, demanding that we consider their existence here in our world.”
