His ceramic sculptures are built up like sediments, and take on geological logic through their construction and firing processes. The slips, glazes and clays shift, expand and shrink at varying rates in a way that mirrors geological activity on a macro level. What we see are cross-sections of layers of dynamic color and form with organic activity defining them. They are fascinating and powerful objects.” - Daniel Kany, Portland Press Herald\/Maine Sunday Telegram\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eWe are honored to work with both Jonathan and his wife\u003cspan data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003ca title=\"Kate Mess Midcoast Maine Enamel Artist\" href=\"https:\/\/www.thegoodsupply.org\/collections\/kate-mess\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\" data-mce-href=\"https:\/\/www.thegoodsupply.org\/collections\/kate-mess\" target=\"_blank\"\u003eKate Mess\u003c\/a\u003e, award-winning enamelist and jewelry artist.
