Hunter-Wolff Gallery is pleased to offer ceramics created by Jon Puzzuoli. He is a contemporary, full-time American potter living in Connecticut. His life is absorbed in clay, both creating and teaching. Jon’s passion emanates from educating others in the  art of pottery. While working full time as a professional potter, he also is Head of the Ceramics Department at Silvermine School of Art in New Canaan, CT, and Co-Chair of it’s almost 300 Guild Artists. 

Most of Jon’s functional tableware, lighting and sculptural fine art are made of stoneware or porcelain and start at the potter’s wheel. The hand thrown work is then embellished with hand building and sculptural techniques. Developing unique glazes and growing crystals on the surface of his wares are a particular focus.  His work is characterized by vivid bright glazes that have a water like quality, a feature that captured Hunter-Wolff  Gallery’s attention. Puzzuoli often uses glazes as “clothes” on his forms that are inspired by the female body. 

Early in his career, he started in a working apprenticeship at Lakeside Pottery, a ceramic art teaching facility that is a nationally recognized ceramic and sculpture restoration studio.  Puzzuoli has since exhibited his work in shows and galleries in Connecticut, New Jersey, New York and in Colorado at Hunter-Wolff Gallery. 

Along with teaching and creating exquisite pottery, Jon takes on a diversity of commissions. Many organizations, churches,  interior designers, and fellow artists of all kinds have commissioned work over the years. Jon says he enjoys taking on a wide array of commission ideas that are both functional and sculptural, for indoors or out. Starting with a sketch and a description, he is committed to help clients refine their ideas and see a project come to life.
