Joey Chiarello | Artist Profile


"The Trade-Off," 2012. Porcelain, underglazes, glazes, boar's hair and polymere.

Joey Chiarello is a professional ceramics artist currently living and working in Honolulu, Hawaii. This self-taught sculpture artist creates detailed pieces that feature various animals and mythical creatures. Combining sculpture, painting, and relief techniques, Chiarello’s creations feature spiritual symbolism and Asian art influences. His artwork reflects the soul’s spiritual journey through life. Of his work, Chiarello explains, “I combine intricate, hand drawn detail requiring many firings using under-glazes, glazes, slips and luster in the surface embellishment while using whiskers, bones, precious metals, steel and stones as accents for claws and more.”

A native of Colorado, Chiarello’s love for nature began while exploring this surrounding woods, mountains with his mother. This love of nature is reflected in his sculptures and his preference for using natural materials in his work. He began sculpting in 2002 under the tutelage of Esther Shimazu, and attended workshops with Sergei Isupov and Michael Sherrill to hone his skills. Chiarello later began exhibiting his work in Seattle, and later in Hawaii. He has also taught workshops and sculpture classes.
