About Jillian ODwyer

I got hooked on ceramics during college and continued to make work for many years as a hobby. In June 2011 I decided to ditch the corporate world after over 10 years in human resources and focus on making and selling my artwork full-time. A risky move that I have since integrated into the design and development process for my work.

I am known at the studio for rarely, okay never, testing a glaze or glaze combination before using it on a piece, for rarely sticking with the same clay body week to week, and, Iím sure, for being a little out there. : ) All of this trial and error is reflected in my work, which ranges from earthy to whimsical to Ö you guessed it Ö a little out there. : )

Most of my inspiration comes from nature and earthy, fittingly, is a word frequently used to describe my work. Trees, in particular, are a fascinating subject for me and Iíve incorporated them into the majority of my work.

I have been and continue to be lucky to be involved in the Redlands Art Association for their member show themes never seem to fit with my current work. Iíve created some popular series of work using the show themes as a jumping off point such as waffle-weave fruit bowls and square flower vases.

More recently, I started teaching a beginning handbuilding class and have been thoroughly enjoying the experience. Not only is it fun, but it has provided lots of great ideas to expand my own work.

If Iíve learned anything since starting on this journey to share my art with all of you, it is that the occasional risk is inspiring all by itself. I canít wait for what kind of twist my next experiment will yield.

Jillian is currently an Instructor at The Ceramics Studio at AMOCA as well as a Gallery Coordinator and Operating Committee member for the Redlands Art Association. Her work is exhibited at The Studio Gallery at AMOCA, the Redlands Art Association, Artisans Etc., online and at art fairs throughout Southern California.
