John Donovan has long been recognized for his clay sculpture, exhibiting his work in galleries and around the world and receiving numerous honors and awards. His latest venture, Tenure Ceramics, was born out of his steadily growing collaborations with restaurant owners and chefs to create custom, commercial-grade tableware. John's pieces live in several Nashville restaurants, including City House and Bastion, and are created in his studio in Nashville.
"I’ve enjoyed many of my favorite meals in Nashville at City House and Bastion, but I always catch myself looking beyond the sustenance to the stunning tableware done by John Donovan. His pieces are the perfect compliment to the beautiful and delectable food. Our mutual friend Libby Callaway connected us, and I’m so thrilled to be able to offer these special bowls at Goodwin."
