Artist Statement

Rosemary Jenkins throwing a dishMy work is inspired by personal needs in my own kitchen as well as my customer’s needs. The vessels become handmade conversation pieces to share with family and friends.

In 2006 I was captivated by the endless possibilities of clay and have been working with the medium ever since.  I specialize in wheel thrown, functional, stoneware pottery. I also create functional one of a kind hand built vessels. Each piece is designed focusing on form then function and then back to form. Many of the vessels I create are decorated at various stages by: carving, stamping, adding to or altering the clay. All of my work is glazed by dipping, pouring or brushing and then fired in my electric kiln to cone 6.

I am passionate about pottery.
