• DeLeon Ceramics

    Making dirt look pretty.

  • Artist Bio

    Andres DeLeon was born and raised in Garden City, Ks where he attended Garden City High School, which was where he was first introduced to ceramics on the wheel, honing his skills with the help of YouTube tutorials. After graduating he received an art scholarship to Garden City Community College, where he continued to study ceramics under the tutelage of Brian McCallum.

    His work has been displayed regionally around Garden City, and he plans on pursuing a BFA. For his functional work Andres enjoys the fact that his patrons form an attachment to their favorite bowl, or cup. For his two dimensional work he hopes to capture the sense of wonder, mystery, and child- like curiosity and share it with the world.
