Jenny’s ceramics play with the balance of the piece – each one tilting or sloping, precariously leaning and yet stable on its base.
‘I make individual pieces, mostly vessels and hollow forms because I am interested in the contrast between the inner and outer surfaces and the interplay of light and shade on knife like edges between the two. I work with a fine porcelain body which I throw or coil build. The large coil built pieces have glazed interiors contrasting with burnished and waxed outer surfaces followed by firing to 1080c. The smaller thrown pieces are fired to 1260c.’
