Ben Belknap is an artist, teacher and musician who lives and works in Oakland, CA.

His art work consists primarily of small scale, richly glazed ceramic sculpture. In 2003 he received his bachelor’s degree from The California College of Arts and Crafts and has since had art shows at various galleries around the Bay Area and elsewhere.  Through his work as the Glaze Production Manager at Leslie Ceramic Supply in Berkeley, CA, Ben developed a keen understanding of ceramic materials and glazes. In addition to using many glazes that he developed for his own use, he has taught workshops and classes about glaze technology since 2010 and makes custom glazes for clients in his home studio.
