Onondaga, beaver clan – stoneware pottery and sculpture

Peter B. Jones is a renowned potter and sculptor.  He studied under Hopi artist Otellie Loloma while attending the Institute of American Indian Art in New Mexico. His pottery, which is derived from traditional Iroquois pit firing, hand-built coiling and slab construction, is admired and collected by community members, Native American art collectors, and museums across the country and internationally. Reminiscent of early Iroquois pottery, Jones’ art directly reflects the issues that have impacted the Haudenosaunee.  He is also known for incorporating what he calls “Indian humor” into some of his pieces.

Jones is available to conduct pottery workshops and classes for schools, community groups and other organizations.
