Jesse Golden

Jesse Golden is a full-time ceramic artist and pottery teacher based in Boston, Massachusetts, who operates J.G Clay. He has a BA from the University of Maryland, College Park, and has been a student of the craft for fifteen years. Building his first studio in Los Angeles in 2016, he began teaching and selling his work, eventually pulling away from the corporate marketing rat race. 


His aesthetic can be described as modern minimalist, leaving exposed clay to reveal the beauty of the rich material. Golden believes there is an innate human attraction to clay, and he enjoys seeing students of all genders, colors, and ages falling in love with the craft.
