Collection: Dexter Woods

Dexter Woods is a first-generation ceramicist from Wylie, TX. Dexter received his BFA at Texas Tech University in 2014. Upon graduation, he moved to Phoenix, Arizona to further his art career that included developing a new body of work and some teaching experience. Dexter’s art career took a professional turn when he became involved with The Reitz Ranch Center for the Ceramic Arts project in Clarkdale, AZ.

After some time with the ranch, another opportunity presented itself in the form of a residency with the Mesa Arts Center which concluded in May 2021. Dexter is now studio manager at the Helen DeVitt Jones clay studio of the LHUCA in Lubbock, TX where he continues making sculptural and functional ceramics while experimenting with different atmospheric firings (wood, salt & soda).
