ACGA ARTIST OF THE MONTH –
SALLY GRAVES JACKSON

I starting working with clay in 2008 and pursued it seriously after moving to California seven years ago. In navigating that move from rural North Carolina to the Bay Area, I’ve been drawn to the tension between the natural landscape and the concrete-bound geometry of cities. This has become the emotional territory of my ceramics. Insects, seedpods, trees, birds, stones, and all sorts of human constructions are as much my teachers as the ceramics I see in museums and galleries.  Whenever possible, I incorporate clays that I dig locally.

Clay has led me to wonderful communities through the Palo Alto Art Center and the ACGA.  Through the ACGA Board, I recently helped plan our first online exhibition “Garden Art”.  I volunteer in the Gunn High School ceramics program, and during the pandemic I organized my neighborhood to create clay totems that are now in front of our house.
