"I currently live in Klamath Falls, OR where I am a studio potter. In the mid '00's I lived in Portland, taught at PCC, and currently have over 20 years of clay experience with both BFA & MFA degrees. This gave me the opportunity live and work interesting places, including Austin TX, Philadelphia, and even the island of Kauai. In 2019 I had the privilege of attending a ceramics art residency in Rome, Italy for several weeks.
My work is influenced by textures found in marine and botanical life. Fluidity is created by building and stacking textural bits, similar to plant life growing in repeating layers. Thin clay slabs stack or curl to form an interesting outer surface, blending on the inside to form a vessel level by level with no armature or framework to rely on. Typically I use a porcelain claybody and a grolleg based terra sigillata. Work is both hand built and thrown, and electric kiln fired to cone 6.
Available artwork is at jenniferhillceramics.com and live events in Oregon."
