ABOUT THE ARTIST:
The artist’s name is Samuel Jernigan, he is a graduate student. He graduated in the Fall of 2015 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ceramics. Jernigan’s work is quite intricate, he makes sculptures out of ceramics and spray paint. Jernigan has been working with ceramics since 2000, he worked as a production artist. He spends about 14 to 16 hours a day working a day marking art.
His work reminded me of characters from Dr.Seuss books, disney and even elmo. His work was very interesting and it look like he took some time to create these master pieces. I wished he finished coloring the blank pieces, it would of gave so life to the art than it just being plain but they still looked good.
