Jacob Robertson’s ceramics research encompasses many areas of material study. Working with clay, wood, metal, and found objects as well as created ones, he focuses primarily on feelings of nostalgia. Robertson has been mostly interested in the pairing of material and the use of strange forms to create interesting visual fields and absurd objects. This loaded word, nostalgia, while loaded with historical and cultural baggage, presents a duality of feelings, a space between joy and sadness, a rich memory that is false and filtered by the individual. This balance created by these emotional opposites leaves space for the feelings Robertson aims to evoke, a penumbra.

Jacob Robertson is a contemporary artist working in the area of ceramics and mixed media with a BFA degree from the University of Kentucky.
