Jethro is an artist living and working in Gippsland who has recently taken up a teaching position in Visual Arts at Federation University Gippsland Campus. His sculptures explore materials and making processes. Jethro has exhibited in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney Perth and internationally at the Kunsthochschule Mainz, Germany.

In 2016 Jethro was artist-in-residency in the Cowwarr Art Space CAN Inc. Ceramic Studio where he experimented with the clay forms on the wheel and various surfaces with raku and black firing. It was always fun to have Jethro in Cowwarr and it is great to have his work exhibited in the Space.
Jethro thanks the following people for their support and generosity: Ceramicist and Black Ware expert Paul Gennings, Cowwarr Art Space, Gavin Roberts, Kalinda Vary, Jeph Neale, John Meade, Felix and Jo Hampton, Brent King and Sary Zaniniri at Monash University, Georgina Glanville.
This will be the last exhibition for 2017.
