A sculptor and furniture maker, Jon Brooks is known for the innovative quality and poetic imagery of his work, as well as for his exploration of the line between function and art. He has exhibited widely in the United States and abroad including the "Craft Today, USA" European Tour and "Celebrating American Craft" at the Danish Museum of Decorative Art, Copenhagen, Denmark. A graduate of the Rochester Institute of Technology with B.F.A. and M.F.A. degrees, Brooks has taught at Haystack, Penland, and the University of Tasmania. He has held artist residencies at Alfred University, Rhode Island School of Design, Philadelphia College of Art, and New Zealand's L'Etacq College. Jon's work is included collections at the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American Art, The Currier Museum of Art and the American Craft Museum. Brooks has received awards from the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen and, in 2004, was named a New Hampshire State Council on the Arts Lifetime Fellow.
