Jack Sims (Borrego Springs, CA)
From the time I was a little kid, I liked to make things. Whatever materials were available; paint, crayons, toothpicks, rubber bands, pipe cleaners, Popsicle sticks, string, thread, and clay were the basis of many of my first creations. I always had great support from my parents, not so much I suppose because they thought I was showing early signs of genius or great engineering skills; after all they were over-the-moon when I learned to tie my shoes. I live in Borrego Springs, CA and currently my focus is high fired clay sculpture.
