Corey Jefferson is a ceramic artist, working as an Instructor in the Ceramics Department at Herron School of Art, IUPUI. Corey makes ceramic sculpture and often adds found objects to his pieces. He is currently interested in Social Practice Art Making.
The primary material of social practice is person-to-person exchange, interaction, or participation. Within the art making process, the practice emphasizes people in relationships to each other and their surroundings. Social practice maintains the intention of creativity while incorporating elements of community outreach.
Corey also makes sculptures out of ceramics and found objects. This theme has been a focus in his work, for the past 5 years. Corey enjoys creating objects out of clay using both wheel throwing and the hand building methods.
Corey enjoys involving people of all ages, from all backgrounds in the process of making art. He is committed to engaging community members in the process of making art and giving back to the community.
