Scott Jennings uses thin slabs of white stoneware and paper patterns to create his unique hand-built tableware. From teapots to the humble cup, Scott captures the plasticity of the material in each piece. The rough forms are pinched, stretched, patterned and assembled completely by hand. He leaves clues as to how each piece was constructed in the form of exposed seams or thumbprints. Transparent, brightly colored glazes are used to finish each piece because they accentuate the details in the form and add a vibrant quality to each piece.
Scott studied ceramics at California State University Fullerton, earning a B.F.A. in ceramics in 1996. He has worked as a ceramics lab technician at The Irvine Fine Arts Center and Mt. San Antonio College. He has taught at The Irvine Fine Arts Center, Mt. San Antonio College, Ruby’s Clay Studio, and Higher Fire Studios. His work in the ceramics industry includes working as the Technical and Operations Manager for Terra Mia Studios and most recently he was the Dinnerware Production Manager for Heath Ceramics.
