Wood

14.75” D x 3.5” H

    Clayton James grew up in Belding, Michigan, until his teenage years when his family moved to Putnam, Connecticut. Even when he was young, James knew that he wanted to be an artist, not for fame, but as a way of life.

    When World War II broke out, he was attending Rhode Island School of Design and declared himself a conscientious objector.  He moved to a camp for artists in Waldport, Oregon with other conscientious objectors, where he met and befriended Morris Graves. James would eventually marry fellow artist and RISD student, Barbara Straker. The couple remained in the Northwest, moving from Oregon to Washington, where they lived on the Hood Canal and in Seattle.  

    In 1950, James spent a year in Pennsylvania as an apprentice of master woodworker and furniture maker George Nakashima, after which the James family moved back to Seattle. They stayed in the city until 1953 and decided to move to La Conner around the same time as Guy Anderson. After becoming disillusioned with abstract expressionist painting, James started to work with clay, concrete, and wood, with clay later becoming his primary medium.
