Biography

Cambridge based artist JJ Vincent creates hand-made ceramic animal sculptures. The emphasis on each piece lies in individual character and expression, ranging from his highly stylised hares to the more anatomically accurate pet portrait commissions.

Initially self-taught, JJ has always had a “natural tendency to do, make and understand everything.”  He is fascinated by clay- the fact that we can take what is essentially mud, and, using a little imagination, produce something that has the potential of invoking emotional response for decades, if not centuries. In the artist’s own words, “I will probably not be around then, but it is reassuring to think that my fingerprints will be.”
