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 is currently a Post Back at Colorado University in Boulder. He is working on applying for his MFA to start in the fall of 2019.
