ceramic works by jennifer bennett walker

these clay pieces from illinois artist jennifer bennett walker intrigue me. there is something about them that reminds me of an unfinished thought, or someone finishing another person’s thought. she handbuilds her one of a kind pieces from earthenware and uses underglazes and glazes. she has a bfa from ohio university in graphic design, with a photography and printmaking emphasis.

jennifer is inspired by nature, its textures and the world around her. she digs deeply in nature to see intention. her organic observations manifest themselves in the form of handcrafted pieces that burst with latent possibility and unique characteristics of form and color. she strives to create works that are the antithesis of the banal or expected.
