Jeff Nebeker, both an accomplished ceramist and pastry chef, draws visual parallels between frosting, cake decorating, and baking a cake with his hand-built, “almost edible” ceramic creations. His patience and technical skill with the clay and glazes creates what he calls “guiltless desserts.” In integrating his clay, and often even his painting experiences, in his work, he often includes the tracings of the process of making pastry as a foundation to the subject matter and idea.

Alpha Ceramic Supplies changed their brick and mortar store name to Alpha Fired Arts 10 years ago to become a "Creative Clay Learning Center". Alpha Fired Arts now offers sculpture workshops with Tony Natsoulas and beginning pottery classes held through the Learning Exchange. Alpha has after school clay classes for kids. They are currently building a large clay studio called the "Art Ark" for special group clay events. Monthly studio memberships are available that offer a well equipped clay studio and kilns for firing your creations.

Nebeker studied ceramics at the University of California at Davis with  Robert Arneson and David Gilhooly, and he studied art history with Wayne Thiebaud. He got his B.A. in 1980 and then went to the San Francisco Art Institute where he received his M.F.A. One noted gallery he has shown at is the famed Candy Store in Folsom, CA
