Jeff Downing


Jeff Downing teaches sculpture at San Francisco State University where he received his MFA in 1992. His numerous solo and group exhibitions have won him many prestigious honors and awards. He writes, “For the past decade I have been focusing on dog imagery in order to develop a better understanding of the connection between human society and animals.” Childhood memories, nature and dreams also play an important role, along with the improvisational nature of the clay.
