Briggs' porcelain sculptures possess a mysterious, otherworldly quality. The artist's work is included in several public and private collections around the United States and abroad—including the World Ceramic Center in Ichon, Korea, and the Ceramic Research Center in Tempe, Arizona.
Briggs received his M.F.A. from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1999. The ceramic artist was awarded an Individual Artist Fellowship from the Tennessee Arts Commission in 2006.
