Jeremy Randall is known for functional and decorative slab built ceramics.

Randall creates work using paper templates or free form designs. He uses a variety of textured boards to pattern the clay surface prior to assembling each flat slab into a final vessel form. Randall often drops the slabs from overhead onto the textured boards. The resulting linear, circular, or metal-tread patterns are transferred by force into the leather hard clay. This process is followed by construction of the vessel.

Color is added by using a variety of terra sigillata hues applied prior to firing. Two or more terra sigillatas are sometimes applied by layering. The effect is a light-on-dark appearance which emphasizes the textured surface. Works are low fired, and often feature black glazes, or none at all. Randall's signature forms include a variety of rubber-capped bottles and lidded canisters with the addition of nichrome wire handles. His work references rural Americana: farm tools, architecture, and antiquities, function and history.
