Hi, I’m Jill!
“I love the inherent sculptural quality that is found in my work and is truly unique to my style of pottery making. “
I am a ceramic artist with a focus on hand building. I use stoneware and porcelain clays to create my art forms. I carefully stretch slabs of clay by hand through a process of repetitively tossing them onto a wedge table. I have deliberately chosen the use of bright glaze colors to continue the contemporary feel of my work. The relationship between the forms and glaze colors that I use combine to create an unspoken statement of minimalism which is a resonating theme in my work.
I apply imagery to my work using a process known as a Xerography transfer.
The imagery I choose is inspired by nature and is a reflection of my personal vision.
I think the renaissance of handmade is a beautiful thing.
There is a charm to knowing the artist and also something special that resonates from that connection.
Certain coffee mugs make us happy in the morning and heirloom serving pieces are talked about at dinner parties. Having handmade ceramic pieces in our homes creates a special relationship between home and heart.
