Ty Johnson moved to San Marcos, Texas in November of 2007 to help design and build the Eye Of The Dog Art Center. Ty is currently working in his newly completed studio making functional and funny yard art.
While his work is technically complex it has a loose and playful appearance.
"I love playing in the clay and the way clay feels and responds to the touch. Anything is possible! I have always been a builder of things and my ceramic art is another expression of that passion for the hand made object. "
Ty was born in Oklahoma, spent his "kid" years in New Orleans and worked as a photographer for 25 years in Austin. In 2003 Ty retired from the newspaper business and started messing around with clay. Ty is a self-taught clay artist and is proud to be a new member of the Texas clay community.
