Joel Bennett's 30-year history as a ceramic artist has led to the creation of beautiful and unique works in utilitarian stoneware and porcelain; raku fired ware, sculptural tile work, wall pieces, and burnished pit-fired ceramics. His work has been recognized around the world. In addition to numerous events across the United States, Joel has participated in events in France, Vietnam, El Salvador, Argentina, and Cuba. Joel also shares his love of his art through his teaching of ceramics at Santa Rosa Junior College in his native Sonoma County, California, for the past 20 years, and has been active in the community as an artist-in-residence, art educator, and workshop instructor.
"As a professional artist it's important to have your work be seen by as many potential buyers as possible. TradeCrossing has given me the opportunity to make my pieces available to a wider audience on the Web", said Mr. Bennett.
