Biography  
J.B. Blunk


 J.B. Blunk, Sculptor, Ceramicist, 1926-2003 

JB Blunk is closely associated with the group of Northern California artists influenced by surrealist
Gordon Onslow Ford.  Introduced to Isamu Noguchi while in Japan, he became good friends with Noguchi and later other artists Jean Tinguely and Lee Mullican.

J.B. Blunk studied ceramics and then turned to sculpture after moving to Inverness. Drawing from
Eastern influences, his sculptures often straddle the line between functional and natural.  Because of his
exquisite crafsmanship in wood working he is often compared to other California artists Arthur Espenet,
Sam Maloof, and John Stocksdale.
