Upcoming Events

Handmade Tea Cup Class

Using the most basic hand-building tool… our HANDS, we will pinch a set of teacups that have our own personal mark, touch, and style. These cups will be made with a white clay-body and fired with bluish-green transparent celadon glaze.

About Instructor:

Jessica grew up in a vibrant family home on Long Island, permeated by music and art. She played several instruments in grade school; her secret fantasy was to become a musical conductor. As she matured, her interests veered to the Visual Arts. Her first degree, from New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), was in Fashion Design. She then journeyed to Sonoma State University, in California’s Napa Valley, to study Expressive Arts. It was there that she discovered her love for Ceramics. The next logical step was to complete the Masters program in Fine Arts – Ceramics -- at Syracuse University. Settling in Massachusetts’ arts-rich Northampton-Amherst region, she set up a studio focused on tile making and mosaics. Periodic trips to the Mediterranean region added profound inspiration, and her discovery of Venetian Plaster. What first drew her to the material was its sensual surface, which is similar to burnished clay before firing. It also affords the artist full reign to hand-dye the Plaster to any desired color. This new work was born of a series of dramatic life changes, particularly her studies of the Kabbalah (Jewish Mysticism), which enables Jessica to combine her spiritual practice with her art-making process.
