Jason was raised in QC, grew up around Montreal. At first, he was involved solely in the art of photography, but his interest in ceramics grew from trying his hands at throwing on the wheel, while attending Concordia University. Five years later, he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts at NSCAD, and completed his residencies. His focus now is about making an impact in the ceramic community- through the gathered knowledge passed on to him and interpreting ceramics in a new form.
