Jon Townley ~ 'untitled ceramics'
Jon Townley has worked in the visual effects and animation industry for nearly thirty years, winning two Emmys and various accolades, including an ANNIE nomination for Best Production Design for his work as Lead Set Designer on “Ice Age 4 / Continental Drift.” In his current role as Senior Designer at Blue Sky Studios, he has created set designs for the films “Horton Hears a Who,” “Ice Age 3/ Dawn of the Dinosaurs,” “Epic” and “Rio 2.” Seven years ago, Jon re kindled his early interest in ceramics and began working in his home studio to create one of a kind decorative pieces and sculptures in clay that reflect his combined love of the Japanese ceramics tradition and modernist sculpture. He says, “ My professional design work at Blue Sky is a source of constant inspiration for the work I do on my own. Rather than detracting, the two pursuits seem to energize each other.”
