“Art is something that makes you breathe with a different kind of happiness”-Anni Albers
Nature is a strong design element in Jessie‘s pottery. She loves to incorporate textures, trees, vines, leaves, indentations and other accents to make her work distinct. She strives to represent the beauty of these mountains using clay and glazes.As you step into Jessie’s clay studio you will see, as she describes it, organized chaos with wheel pieces and slab work covering the tables and shelves in various stages of production. Her sweet dog , Arlo , may wander in to greet you… and typically many genres of music will be playing in the background.One of the rewards for Jessie is to hear from customers how they use her pottery. Some customers use their pottery daily and others have special spots picked out for their pieces to be used as decoration. To know that a bowl, a mug, a platter, a casserole will be a treasure in someone’s home or part of a memory cooking and spending time with family is what keeps Jessie vibrant and inspired as she creates each piece of pottery.
