Jenny Wolfer / Firebird Ceramics

Jenny Wolfer makes unique and beautiful ceramic pieces intended for everyday use. The foundation of Jenny's work is in the pursuit of functionality. Functionality as not only specific utilitarian purpose, but also ease of use, practicality, and integration into daily life. This is manifested in the capacity and weight of a baking dish, the freedom to put a mug in the dishwasher and microwave, the way a bowl fits comfortably in the hands and the tactile experience of the carved design, the chime of a lid as it’s removed from a jar, the color of the glaze. Then, in this way, the decorative aspect becomes part of the function — even when a piece is not in use, it still has purpose and place.
