Eric Jackson, Buda Texas. Texas Medicine Pottery, Est.1986. With over 40 years in clay and counting, Eric Jackson has been consumed by ceramic pursuits since 1980 when he was first introduction to clay in high school. As an artist and production potter, he makes pots for the love if doing so. He is interested in form, function, surface, and fire. Responding to the warm palette found in shino glazes, he looks for surface effects from wax, oxides and smoke, but he is ever inspired to explore new glazes and firing techniques. Eric has a BFA from UT Austin, and has been working in the Austin area since 1986. Teaching throughout his career at many locations, including The Contemporary Austin (Austin Museum of Art at Laguna Gloria) for over 17 years, and recognized for his work by the Austin Chronicle as a “Best of Austin” recipient, Eric’s primary goal remains to make better pots; pots which invite contemplation.
