Howard Jones by adroit means performs alchemy transforming everyday tools and objects into thought-provoking works of art.  Jones practices a high level of craftsmanship on the objects he reshapes and in Jones’s unusual juxtapositions of functions, new insight occurs with common objects we thought we knew so well. 

In the artist’s own words: “For the last few years I have been very interested in everyday objects and tools, trying to create unexpected new uses for them in keeping with, but enlarging upon, their original purpose.  I am as interested in non sequiturs that make one rethink something (or someone) they may have taken for granted.”

Howard Jones teaches at the John Burroughs School, a college-preparatory school in St. Louis. Prior to Burroughs, Jones taught at Ohio University and Washington University. He holds a Bachelor's degree in Studio Art from Kenyon College and a Master's in Painting and Printmaking from Ohio University.
