Jessikah Ann makes functional wheel thrown decorative porcelain forms. Often her pottery has illustrations of animals, plants and human figures. She paints a silhouette in underglaze, then uses sgraffito and slip-trailling techniques to add detail to the design. Ann primarily fires her ceramics using wood or salt firing methods.


She is inspired by the texture and design of Japanese woodblock prints. She prefers woodfireing techniques that she says, “are chosen to allow the lively movement of the flame to add color and unpredictability to my otherwise highly controlled design”.
