Jennifer makes hundreds of petal like ceramic pieces that are then stitched with translucent thread to form her sculpture. She is drawn to the beauty and subtlety of the natural world. Themes of fragility, ephemerality and translucency are central to her work. It is the rituals of making, the physical rhythms, the process and time involved that are the central aspects of her practice. The ethereal properties of porcelain, that she is drawn to, requires a certain delicacy and discipline. This slowness and repetition in her making process are essential components of the finished pieces.
