Jarrett West's works reveal his relationship with Nature.
At a first encounter with Jarrett West outdoor sculptures, one is immediately drawn to the simple forms and their massive scale. His gestures are grand yet not obtuse in their presentation.
These works sit beautifully against nature as if they had risen from the Northern New Mexico grasses.
West’s time as a rancher, in Idaho and Wyoming, and as a builder, throughout the American West, is quite evident in his work. Jarrett knows and respects what it takes to work and play alongside nature. From the grit of the earth, to the burn of the sun - Jarrett works reveal his relationship with Nature.
Jarrett has a minimalist touch that procures the audience’s attention upon first glance. It goes without saying that Jarrett has mastered his process and ability to inject his individual vision in to each piece. Jarrett’s palette of glazes are organic and vibrant and skin each sculpture with harmony and expression. Jarrett challenges the viewer to honor the history of ceramic creations and envision their possibilities moving in to the future.
We are thrilled to be able to present these works to our collectors.
