Meet the Artist:
WHO ARE YOU, WHERE ARE YOU FROM, & WHAT DO YOU DO?
I’m Jennifer, originally from Watkinsville, GA but have lived in the Augusta area for the past 24 years. I’m a ceramic artist with a background in illustration.
DESCRIBE YOUR PROCESS.
It varies depending on what I’m working on, but I typically start at the wheel to crate the perfect form for the character I have in mind. I then add to or alter the form to begin to bring out important characteristics. After bisque firing I add detail with underglaze and then hand-paint glazes before the final firing.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
My pets, nature, Sanrio characters and my favorite cartoons.
FUN FACT ABOUT YOU.
I’m passionate about French Bulldog rescue and rehabilitation.
FAVORITE THING ABOUT DOWNTOWN AUGUSTA.
I love the diversity of the people that can be found downtown.
WHY DO YOU LOVE TO DESIGN, CREATE + MAKE?
It allows me to really connect with myself.
WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WOULD SHARE WITH OTHER ARTISTS +
Make what you love and don’t be afraid to share it with others.
