Jill Lawley

I am forever excited by the tactility of clay. My handbuilt and thrown work serve to emphasize tactility, the construction process, repitition, angle and line. Each piece is one of a kind, and fired in an electric kiln to cone 5. All of the ceramics are dishwasher, microwave and food safe, and are meant for use in the home.
