Jason Piccoli - Artist in Residence at LUX Center for the Arts I am a current artist in residence at the LUX Center for the Arts in Lincoln, NE. I received my MFA in Ceramics From Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, and my BFA in Ceramics from Metropolitan State University of Denver. I am drawn to clay because of its potential to invite any medium into it. With my own forms I use underglaze to paint, resists to etch, and a variety of tools to carve and sculpt. I am interested in exploring the relationships between sculpture, the painted image and function as they exist in the fine arts.
