I am Jennifer, the one and only behind the making of Jennifer Spring Ceramics. My path to ceramics started out while pursuing my first career in marketing for creative businesses. The pottery started as a creative outlet for my busy mind and I found calm in the practice of centering on the wheel and using my hands to make work. I was hooked! And then life happened, met my husband, changed jobs, had two kids, and somehow 10 years passed before I found clay again.
I started back taking community pottery classes in 2010 and it brought tears to my eyes because I forgot that it meant so much to my happiness. I eventually started collecting a wheel and kiln, and everything I would need to have a full studio out of my home. I moved toward turning my passion into a real business a couple of years ago and there's no looking back.
I’m proud to have participated in several high profiles shows like Urban Craft Uprising and Renegade Craft Fair, have my work on the shelves at MadeHere Seattle, West Elm, and Venue. I also feel fortunate to have been featured on the cover of HGTV magazine and highlighted as a West Coast Creative in Traditional Home Magazine.
I’m incredibly thankful to do what I love and have people support my art. My goal is to make life more enjoyable with ceramics that feels great to touch and hold. I'm strongly influenced by fashion and home decor and think about how my work fits in a modern home. I consider myself a Seattle native with a Southern California heart. I've been in Seattle most of my life but spent my formative years living on the beach in Southern California (San Clemente).
