I found these pieces by Samuel Jernigan very interesting because they brought back some childhood memories. Some of the pieces reminded me o something out of a Dr.Seuss book or a twisted disney character. Samuel Jernigan is art program graduate in bfa ceramics. He’s from central bay area California and grew up mostly around agriculture which may or may not play a role on his work. He has been working with ceramics for the past about 16 years. Samuel became very fond of ceramics and felt very comfortable working with the material. He decided to make pieces out of ceramics because he had grown very close with ceramics and preferred it by choice. Samuel said most of the pieces were done within four months besides 2 major pieces. My favorite piece is the “beheaded cinderella” as I like to call it. Is it really cinderella? Who knows, but everything from the neck to collar bones is so clean with vivd lines and the happy face as head was just great. This was my very gallery this week just because it made me go back in time till when I was a kid again.
