Jennifer A Murphy is a ceramic artist who spent her childhood playing in the mud, mushing Play-doh, and making modeling clay ladybugs. She is currently continuing her pursuit of all things mushy and malleable by working her way toward a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in ceramics at the University of Wisconsin in Superior. She sees Master of Fine Arts in her future.
By combining wheel thrown objects with hand building, Jennifer turns ordinary stoneware forms into strange and fascinating specimens. These creatures grow from an interest in textures created by nature, and how they play off of and harmonize with one another. Incorporating traditional ceramic glaze and non-traditional materials to finish these works, she treats each sculpture as a three dimensional canvas.
