Dave Lovejoy

David Lovejoy has been working as a maker and designer since the early 1980’s.  A successful career in graphic design supported a long and leisurely arts education at several schools and studios, focusing on ceramics.  His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in California, Hawaii and Oregon and is in collections in the U.S. and Europe.

As a maker of things, his artistic direction has always included using and repurposing whatever materials fit the need, with a feeling toward materials from the 30’s & 40’s, due to their wonderful 'patina of use' through time.  Trained as a ceramic artist, his recent work includes assemblage and installation art. He has won a few awards, and in 1993 was named one of the “Art Stars of California” by Art in California magazine.
