STUDIO 233:

Ceramic Art by Jim Webb

STUDIO 233 

Clay artist Jim Webb began studying ceramics with Toshiko Takaezu while an undergraduate at Princeton University. After graduating with a degree in art history he traveled extensively, primarily in the Middle East and Afghanistan, where he developed a keen interest in Islamic art and architecture. Upon returning to the U.S. he studied economics at Columbia University where he received a master’s degree. It was while studying at Columbia that Jim rediscovered his love of ceramics. At Toshiko’s urging he moved to Lambertville, New Jersey, and became a member of the Clay Co-op group. In 1978 he opened his own studio, which is today Studio 233.

Jim’s interest in lighting was born of a desire to combine clay’s sculptural and functional potential. Each piece gives him the opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind statement with the use of glazes and metallic oxides. His handbuilt slab lamps are incised with a variety of carved motives that render each one a unique piece of art.

Jim and his wife Barbara have three children and live in Hopewell, New Jersey.
