Outside the Office

Jennifer enjoys throwing pots.

Having studied ceramics in college, Jennifer spends an evening each week at the potter’s wheel in her studio. Over the years, she’s joined a cooperative, sold her artwork, donated it toward charitable causes, and given much away as gifts to friends and family. She relents to the occasional request for a set of pasta bowls, despite the one-time special order for a ceramic armadillo that nearly turned her off commissions altogether.
