Jennifer is a ceramicist working in South Devon. Her studio is situated on the edge of Dartmoor, a quiet space to develop her practise.
She makes vessels with a timeless simplicity, inspired by the ancient potters who remained closely attuned to their natural environment.
The vessels are hand-built, using the pinch and coil methods. These ancient techniques produce a different quality to wheel thrown work. Using only a few simple tools, the process is slow and rhythmic. The form of each vessel grows organically, allowing space to think and modify. Each coil is finely pinched out, before a further is added, in a rhythm that creates a distinct pattern.
Clay has a memory. Every mark and impression in the soft material is preserved in the finished piece. The intimate making process remains.
Jennifer has an MA in Ceramics from The Royal College of Art. Prior to this she gained a first class honours degree from West Surrey College of Art and Design.
On leaving college, she was awarded a Crafts Council Setting Up Grant, and her ceramics has been featured in exhibitions worldwide.
Today, Jennifer is continuously investigating forms, glazes, textures and firing techniques.
