Diploma in Fine Arts, majoring in ceramics.
Jennifer is a self employed potter for over 25+ years. She tutors for Otago School of Fine Art, as a distance tutor/supervisor for Diploma of Ceramic Arts and teaches adult night classes for Otaki pottery club.
She has won many awards and her work is in collections here and overseas.
Jennifer works in a variety of clays from porcelain to earthenware and fires in both electric and gas kilns. Focusing on form –“My aim is to make pieces which are simple in shape and combine beauty and function”
Each series of works are a combination of wheel and hand built forms.
She is interested in developing surfaces using coloured slips, stamps, textures and prints, followed by layering glazes to bring vibrancy to the finished surface.
Each series of work is very different and individual and allows her to play with ideas and techniques, which are a challenge and a joy.
