Jonathan Garcia
In 2007 Jon Garcia graduated from the school of Industrial Design at Metropolitan State College in Denver.
After Graduation, Jon began acquiring an extensive collection of tools which enabled him to pursue his creative endeavors.

Jon has always had woodworking tools close at hand due to his father’s collection, and was influence by his mother’s pottery and brother’s drawings of bizarre wonderful creatures from an early age.

Jon is very detailed in making his sculptures, for example the creation of sculpture “Evolution” took about 350 hours.

Jonathan Garcia’s comment to sculpture “Pulsar”:
“ The inspiration came from a Pulsar Star. The center is rotating clockwise while the top and bottom are rotating counterclockwise; giving the top and bottom spirals the appearance of almost moving along through the center.
Inside of the top and bottom spirals I added bulb-like extrusions (same color as center spirals) to suggest that the center material is escaping through the vortex.”
