functional art inspiring joy...every day

About her pottery

If you’re looking for mass produced perfection, Jessica is not your girl. She values the aesthetic tradition of wabi-sabi which embraces imperfection and uniqueness and no one of her pieces is like the other. Jessica is not afraid to experiment and fail, feeling that the journey of an artist can only progress through learning from failures and persisting. She uses a combination of retail and unique glaze recipes that were handed down from her mentor Greg Hathaway. She’s not afraid to try something new or try something in a new way, resulting in some truly unique pieces.
