I’ve always been a texture lover and I think that’s why I gravitated towards clay as a medium. Seeing the contrasting depths of pattern applied to a three dimensional form is really striking to me.
My earliest texture experiments years ago were pretty simplistic – a single pattern repeated over and over. Simplistic, but that’s when I became addicted creating vases of all sizes and descriptions during a Friday evening open studio time. It was my release from the corporate world job I held at the time and when I also made the transition to working almost exclusively with hand built techniques instead of the potter’s wheel.
Since all of those years ago my love of texture has taken me on many experiments from setting up roadside to gather passerby’s shoe impressions to marathon sessions creating my own clay stamps from found objects. The culmination of all of this experimentation and play is seen in my latest work featuring complex flowing texture patterns.
Jillian is a ceramic artist who focuses mainly on creating highly textured, hand built, functional work. When she’s not creating her own work she teaches hand building techniques to both children and adults. Jillian is currently an instructor at AMOCA Ceramics Studio and Redlands Art Association. Her work is exhibited at The Studio Artists’ Gallery at AMOCA, Redlands Art Association, Artisans, Riverside Art Museum’s Blue Door Museum Store and she shows at various art fairs.
Owner, Maker, Designer
My first exposure to ceramics was during my junior year of college. I needed a class to fulfill one of my general ed requirements in creative arts and on a whim, I decided to take a beginning ceramics class. I've been hooked ever since!
Bennie is a born supervisor and is always checking up on the work I'm doing. Here he is making sure I did a good job packing up work to be transported to a show! ; )
