Peter B. Jones is a renowned potter and sculptor. He studied under Hopi artist Otellie Loloma while attending the Institute of American Indian Art in New Mexico. His pottery, which is derived from traditional Iroquois pit firing, hand-built coiling and slab construction, is admired and collected by community members, Native American art collectors, and museums across the country and internationally. Reminiscent of early Iroquois pottery, Jones' art directly reflects the issues that have impacted the Haudenosaunee. He is also known for incorporating what he calls "Indian humor" into some of his pieces.
Jones is available to conduct pottery workshops and classes for schools, community groups and other organizations.

CARLSBAD — Peter Jones, potter and cave photographer, has been in Carlsbad this week teaching a cave photography workshop at Carlsbad Caverns National Park and a three-day pottery workshop at The Artist's Gallery Pottery Studio.
Jones has been coming to Carlsbad once or twice a year for the last 40 years. He was a sophomore at the University of Denver when he visited the area for the first time to go caving. That was 1969, and his interest in cave photography was sparked that summer. He ended up purchasing a camera from his friend and he took a lot of memorably bad photographs that year, he said.
"I was hooked on caving. The caves here are some of the most beautiful in the world," Jones said, noting he's made 30 to 40 trips into Lechuguilla Cave, and Virgin Cave is the most beautiful cave for photography.
His interest in pottery peaked during his senior year in college. He had grown up in Connecticu,t and his family had a summer home in Maine. After graduating, he honed his pottery skills and moved to Maine in 1973 to start his pottery career, operating as Mountain Street Pottery since 1984.
"I always loved Maine, and I've been making a living as a potter for 36 years," he said, adding that is nearly unheard of.
Jones works in stoneware and porcelain clays, firing them to 2,300 degrees F in a gas-fired kiln of his own design. He mixes his stoneware clay using a formula he developed that has excellent workability with a great thermal shock resistance, making

"I made my first piece of pottery when I was in the ninth grade and my mother still has it," Jones said.
Jones loves both photography and pottery. However, he feels more creative as a photographer because when making pottery he's always thinking in terms of what is going to sell the best.
"With my photography, I can just take the best photograph I can," he said, adding that some of his work is included in the Caverns Art Project that was put in place during the October 2008 rededication of the remodeled visitor center at the Caverns.
"I taught a cave photography workshop, and I ended up being asked to photograph the dedication ceremony," he said.
...
How incredibly fortunate I am to have found two things in my life that produce a living income for me and fulfill my creative desires as well," Jones said.
