Allen Barndt

Associate Artist - Current

I am a ceramic artist born and raised here in Philadelphia, PA. I always had an interest in art beginning in elementary school and grew up using it as my main outlet for expression. I was born with Autism and found it difficult to connect to people, and found myself developing into the world of cartoons, comics, and graphic novels as a result. While in college, I discovered ceramics and would eventually earn my BFA in Ceramics in 2017. Since then I have enjoyed finding ways to combine my love of cartoons into my crafts and giving others a view into my strange and unique point of view.

I have been part of the Clay Studio for several years now, first as an intern, and now as an Associate Artist. I am happy to be part of this community of creative people and hope to continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
