Jack Mettier is a raconteur extraordinaire, and has a lot to talk about. He has had over 60 years of passion, experimentation, curiosity and joy in the art of making ceramics. He earned a B.A. and an MA in Art from California State University San Jose with Ceramics and Glass concentration followed by operating a private Glassblowing Studio. Jack has thirty-five years of teaching ceramics, art and jewelry. He taught art and ceramics at Paso Robles High School, and was Chair of the Visual and Performing Arts Department there. At Taft College he taught ceramics and jewelry and was Director of the Art Gallery as well as chairman of the fine arts department. Over the years he has experimented with making kilns and making functional and representational pieces and glazes from different materials, including native clays. He has extensive knowledge of clay history. He has elevated thrown vessels into pieces that speaks of conflict, resolution, and design that transcends the simple form into an artistic statement. He is still experimenting today in his home kiln and continues to experience the magic and joy of unpredictable finished surfaces.
