    About ArtyPantsPottery

    Sales 12
    On Etsy since 2010

    Jen DePaolo is an artist and community organizer. Her work intersects social practice, agriculture, and culinary art in pursuit of beauty and equity!

    My work celebrates sustenance, identity and community and often involves food through partnerships with local growers, chefs and artists. Food tradition and hand made culture have a long lineage in my family, as they do in many others; my work attempts to honor and continue this lineage. Home is the primary environment: there we build relationships, cultivate identity, meet needs, practice kindness and safeguard memory. I examine the role our objects play in this arena. My pots and sculptures are narrative and intimate in scale ~ intended for regular use in the home as well as for the consideration of the relationships that shape our lives.

    I am a studio artist, educator and the Community Outreach Coordinator at the Harwood Art Center in Albuquerque, NM. I moved to Albuquerque in 2004 to begin work as a graduate student and teaching assistant at the University of New Mexico. In 2006, I participated in UNM’s Land Arts of the American West program as a Teaching Assistant. In 2008, I held her MFA exhibition, Home Economics at the Harwood Art Center where, in 2011 I became full time staff. I work for a more just, equitable and integrated community through outreach, studio practice and collaborative projects.

    I show my work in national juried and invitational exhibitions including: Beyond the Brickyard at the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Montana; Small Favors at the Clay Studio in Philadelphia; Daily Companions at Baltimore Clay Works; Art in Craft Media at the Burchfield Penney Art Center in Buffalo; and the upcoming Evocative Garden exhibit with NCECA 2017 in Porland, Oregon. My writing has been published in the international journal, Ceramics, Art and Perception.

    Frequently asked questions
    Custom and personalized orders

    I do not make custom order out of state. For collectors in New Mexico, contact me with questions or to learn more.

    Care instructions

    My pottery is intended for regular use in the home and is dishwasher and microwave safe. Porcelain, like all ceramic material, is sensitive to thermo shock. Exposing your hand made pottery to sudden and inconsistent changes in temperature such as a frozen food or a heating element can cause cracking. I recommend pre-warming pots with hot tap water before adding boiling water.

    Gift wrapping and packaging

    I pack all ceramics in heavy cardboard with abundant shipping material and ship via FedX to ensure safe delivery. This care is reflected in the shipping and handling costs.
