Peter Jadoonath

Artist Statement


I focus on making pots that are cartoons and cartoons that are pots. I tend to draw characters from daily life and mythology. The stories I build upon the pots can be mundane, trivial, fantasy, humorous, and bold. I’m interested in the uncomfortable comedy of life and I try to instill that in the narratives. My method of making the pots tends to wander, lately these days I’m focused on low temperature soda and electric firings.
