Jeannine's sojourn with ceramics began in 1997 with her first pottery class at a small studio in New York City. She fell in love with the medium, and continues to have her hands in clay to this day at her Ceramics studio in the Bronx.
Jeannine is fascinated with the evocative nature of color and how the perception of color forms a personal emotional response in the user. Because pottery is a craft that requires technical proficiency in order for the pot to properly function, it requires a constant striving for perfection. Even the mildest irregularity will draw the eye or hand to it and disrupt the user’s experience. Jeannine's intension is to explore how the color, form and texture, of each pot work to create a pleasurable experience for the user.
