After graduating in 2010 with a BFA from Columbus College of Art and Design, Justin has since been focusing on refining his forms, always trying to discover efficiency whenever he can. His passions and inspirations involve 90’s pop culture, retro video game collections, old-school sports figures, architecture, and Korean pottery and patterning, all of which are a source of inspiration for his current work. He fires to cone 10/11 in his soda kiln, often looking for rich carbon-trapping with bright, electric celadons. Justin is also devoted to helping create a culture full of creativity through social media.
