Jeff Downing An American Artist
In the evolving world of ceramic sculpture, San Francisco-based artist/teacher Jeff Downing is well established as a formidable artistic force, creating a steady stream of innovative and adventurous work that pushes boundaries and breaks new ground even as it vividly reflects the artist's own path and the very personal touchstones that have marked his circuitous creative journey.

Sculpture in stone survives far better than works of art in perishable materials, and often represents the majority of the surviving works (other than pottery) from ancient cultures, though conversely traditions of sculpture in wood may have vanished almost entirely. However, most ancient sculpture was brightly painted, and this has been lost.[from wikipedia\]
