Jake Fetterman Bio
Jake Fetterman grew up in the Pacific Northwest with an immigrant mother from Czechoslovakia and a father from Virginia. His mother, whose childhood was affected by a communist occupied country, gave her a strong desire for individuality and a simple down-to-earth life. That desire, coupled with his father’s wide range of skill sets and their strict style of childrearing, influenced him to become a maker. Growing up on a small organic farm while both of his parents built a sailboat from scratch imbued him with a strong desire for self sufficiency and an obsession to similarly create a lifestyle for himself. Jake Fetterman attained his BFA in sculpture and ceramics from Western Washington University in 2015 and a post bacc at CU Boulder in 2017-2019 and is currently a grad at UW Seattle 3D4M program expecting to graduate in 2021.
