Jason Bige Burnett

Artist and owner of Mr. Benny’s Pot Shop and Isla Transfers Jason Burnett earned his degrees in ceramics and printmaking at Western Kentucky University. He then continued his education in the mountains of Western North Carolina at Penland School of Crafts. Shortly thereafter he was an Artist-In-Residence at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, Tennessee where he discovered more than his passion for pottery, but his love for karaoke, moonshine, and Dolly Parton. In 2016 Jason moved back to his childhood home in Louisville, Kentucky with his family only to rediscover his love of Louisville drag queens, bourbon, and all the festivals Louisville has to offer. Jason teaches and exhibits nationally at arts and ceramic facilities, as well as the author of Graphic Clay (Lark Books).
