      Jon Anderson specializes in Fimo creations. The tedious process of creating Fimo pieces sets Jon's art apart from possibly any other kind of art you will ever encounter. An accomplished painter, sculptor and jewelry designer, Jon has lived among incredibly diverse groups of the world’s people, from Central America to the Far East. His Fimo designs show the influences of classical Moorish motifs, Native American spirit figures, ancient petroglyphs, Celtic themes, and more.

     The patterns for the Fimo creations are all hand created by Jon. Different blocks of clay are laid out next to each other, starting at the center of the design and working outwards. These blocks of hand pressed clay are stretched, folded, and cut in half over and over. The cross section of these blocks are the size of a small coin. These "coins" are then sliced extremely thin using a surgical scalpel. These intricate and tiny tiles are hand pressed onto a handmade animal form, cured and fired for hours. After firing is complete, they are cooled and hand sanded to achieve a perfect sheen of smoothness and uniqueness.

     Jon has perfected the art of Fimo creations. His masterpieces are one of a kind. No two pieces are alike, making them highly desirable and collectable.
