September Art Walk featuring Jennifer Spring Ceramics

Jennifer creates modern ceramics for the home and entertaining. She is drawn to patterns, textures, bold colors, and designs that enhance the touch experience that clay invites. She loves to create work that is beautiful to look at, but ultimately, functions well. For example, many of her cups have comfort spots, whether it be a cutout at the top of the handle for your thumb or indents on the side that cup your hand.

 

She uses a combination of ceramics techniques to get the best outcome, including slip casting, hand building, and wheel throwing. Many of her mugs and cups are made with slip cast for consistency and her larger vases and platters are primarily wheel thrown.

 

Jennifer discovered ceramics in 2000 at Lily in the People in Ballard. The connection was immediate, and even though she took a long break from it to pursue a career in marketing creative services, it drew her back again in 2009. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Washington State University, but gained most her ceramic experience from local studio classes in Redmond and Pottery NW.
