About The Artist

Jeff Nebeker was one of the first Funk ceramic artists to perfect the use of pastry tools in clay sculpture. Finding the formula to adhere the wet clay squeezed from pastry tools onto the sculptural, hand built clay body of his form, and an interest in food subjects from 1970’s Pop Art, has led him to produce an amazing array of life-like cakes, confections and portraits of artists as pastry chefs and apprentices.

Nebeker is both an accomplished ceramist and pastry chef. He draws visual parallels between frosting, decorating and baking a cake to hand building, glazing and firing a clay piece, as far as patience, creativity, and technical skill are involved. His work acknowledges the fine art involved with being a professional pastry chef and cake decorator, as well as reference Pop Artists, Claes Oldenburg and Wayne Thiebaud, among others. His figurative works are ceramic.
