The Hands

Jason Bige Burnett:
“Jason "it's-pronounced-bīje" Burnett"

"Find out who you are and do it on purpose" -Dolly Parton
Artist and owner of Mr. Benny's Pot Shop, Jason earned degrees in ceramics and printmaking at Western Kentucky University. He then continued his education in the mountains of Western North Carolina at Penland School of Crafts. Shortly thereafter he was an Artist-In-Residence at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, Tennessee where he discovered more than his passion for pottery, but his love for karaoke, moonshine, and Dolly Parton.
2016 Jason Bige Burnett moved back home to Louisville, Kentucky with his family only to rediscover his love of Louisville drag queens, bourbon, and all the festivals this town has. During this time Jason returned to the idea of opening an online Pot Shop to sell his wares and the work of other highly talented artists and potters.
