Sanny Ceramics makes fine functional wares for our eating and drinking rituals.
Having an affection for the utilitarian objects with which we routinely engage increases our quality of life. It is gratifying to use something that is made with integrity, whether for daily enjoyment or special occasions.
Porcelain or stoneware is the artist's chosen medium because of the tactile nature of the clay throughout the various stages of the ceramic process. Runs of pieces are handcrafted in small batches. Glazes are hand-mixed by the artist.
The high-fired, durable wares can be warm or cool, depending on their contents. Surface treatments vary from smooth or rough to the touch. They can look visually complex or like a blank canvas depending on the glaze and firing atmosphere. They must be held to be fully appreciated.
Jason Sanovich began his ceramics exploration at the age of fifteen in high school in the South Bay of California where he received the nickname "Sanny." After earning his A.A. degree from Cabrillo College, Jason moved to Maui where he was represented by several galleries on the North and South Shores.
He eventually left Maui to live in Northern California where he earned his B.A. from Humboldt State University. Jason currently makes all of his work in his studio in Mendocino, California.
