Jennifer Wankoff Pottery Segmented Mug


A trip to Israel in 1997 where I learned pottery from one of Kibbutz Kfar Hanasi’s founders was what led me to become a potter. My current pots are wheel thrown, often faceted with a wire, and then bellied out from the inside creating movement inspired by nature’s ubiquitous spiral. The sections then become a guide for patterned glaze decorating or as a background for imagery. Of particular inspiration to my glazing is Persian patterning on pottery, and historic marriage contracts (Ketubah) and paper cuts.
