Kasmin

Working primarily in wood and ceramic, JB Blunk developed a distinct style that drew upon the Japanese principle of directness as well as an unfaltering reverence for the natural world. Blunk spent four formative years in Japan, undertaking apprenticeships with master Japanese ceramicists Rosanjin Kitaoji and Toyo Kaneshige, who instructed him in the power of the elemental—earth, water, and fire—that would become fundamental to the character of his work. Blunk's work has been exhibited internationally in Japan and the UK, and is included in the collections of the Oakland Museum of California, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, M+, Museum of Arts and Design, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and numerous private collections.
