An outstanding three-dimensional media artist, Jeff works in unique sculptural genres and traditional ceramics media. His work is inspired by the concept of function, but is not restricted to that realm, as may be noted in his exploration of beautiful surface treatments, form, and utility. His work has been included in countless local, regional, and national exhibitions and is housed in such collections as the Harriet V. Cornell Museum of Fine Art in Florida, as well as in the Ewing Gallery at the University of Tennessee. He has been an instructor and visiting artist for multiple arts institutes across Tennessee in addition to being the artist/owner of Highland Pottery.
Jeffrey has been a full-time faculty member of the art department at Pellissippi State for the past 18 years.
