James Aarons owns a one-person studio specializing in hand-made ceramic art pieces for hospitality, health care, corporate and residential spaces. Most work is created for site specific placement by art consultants, designers and architects. Repertory includes custom designed Dot Compositions in a broad range of colors, textures and styles; ceramic paintings, prints and drawings; and one-of-a-kind objects produced in collaboration with designers and art consultants.
“I am a reformed modern dancer and self-taught ceramic artist who moonlights as a yoga teacher. Dance, clay and yoga share the necessity of exploring space in combination with earthy materials. Plus heat. As if by a gentle stroke of magic, each discipline transforms the ordinary (space, clay and body) into the extraordinary.
My most current ceramic work is a collection of imaginary landscapes drawing upon the physical properties of geomorphic processes. Tectonic shifts, glacial moraines and the erosive forces of rain and wind upon sediment are the incremental movements I look to for inspiration. Additionally, I produce site specific dot compositions; crisp geometric choreographies for vertical surfaces that employ a range of shapes, textures and colors.”
