Judas Recendez

Judas Recendez is a ceramic artist who spent his youth in sunny Visalia, CA, surfing, hiking and exploring an interest in fine art and ceramics. Recendez is a U.S. Army Veteran of the Iraq War who participated in 2 tours of combat before an IED explosion caused him to lose both legs in 2006. During recuperation he honed his ceramic practice at the Walter Reed Art Center, the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design (Washington, DC) and is now in his new home/studio which was built by Homes for Our Troops in 2011. His custom home in Fredericksburg, VA, is designed to accommodate his special needs and his pottery wheel is adapted with a hand pump. His wife, Kristine states that through his art he has found a voice – “He’s served, he’s sacrificed, he’s healed through pottery.”
