John Barkley’s mission is to explore the limits of sculpture in clay, and make available unique, expressive hand made pieces for anybody he can reach. He was born in Austin back in the ’70s and has been living here most of his life. John fell in love with clay at a very early age and has had his hands it it ever since. These days he works almost exclusively in fired earthenware. Color, and lots of it, continues to be a major feature of his work.
