Jessikah Ann makes functional wheel thrown decorative porcelain forms. She is inspired by texture and design of Japanese woodblock prints. Often her pottery has illustrations of animals, plants and human figures. She paints a silhouette in underglaze, then uses both the sgraffito and slip-trailling technique to add detail to the design. Ann primarily fires her ceramics using wood or salt firing methods that as she says, “are chosen to allow the lively movement of the flame to add color and unpredictability to my otherwise highly controlled design”.
