fb: Stephen Jon Mask-Maker




The world of “The Mask” is the culmination of Stephen Jon’s experience of  visual and physical theatre, allied  with a life long exploration of personal and cultural  mythologies.  His work investigates the interface between art and craft,  between art and therapy  and  between the collaborative and individual processes of creativity. He draws on a wide range of skills including clay sculpture, painting and drawing as well as vocal and movement techniques.
