JacobGrantCeramics' Shop Announcement

My name is Jacob Grant. Living in Peoria, IL, I create both functional pottery and sculptural ceramics.

I started my adventures in making and selling pottery over twelve years ago at Eastern Illinois University. Moving to Peoria in 2005, I attended Bradley University for ceramics to attain my Master of Fine Arts degree in 2008. Since then, I have set up a studio in the warehouse district of Peoria, where I create and sell my ceramic pottery and art.

My ceramic bowl wall installations have gained great attention for myself. I have these installed in numerous private house-holds and businesses, inclusive of the Frank Lloyd Wright house in Peoria, IL, as well as the Portabello Yacht Club in Downtown Disney, FL.

My functional pottery and sculptural ceramics are used in and decorate several people's homes and famous businesses, too. The Four Seasons Hotel in Washington, D.C. proudly displays in their main lobby an Art-Deco style panther and several pieces of pottery which I created in 2009. Also in 2009, I was the feature cover artist of a national publication, Sunshine Magazine.
