Handmade Stoneware Pottery by Judy Jackson

       Judy Jackson  studied at Smith College, New York University Graduate School, Corcoran School of Art, Penland and Greenwich House Pottery. She is a founder of Tribeca Potters, a studio in New York, just outside Manhattan in Long Island City, shared by several other studio potters. 

        Judy Jackson's handmade stoneware pieces are wheel thrown, slab built, slip cast or made combining these methods. Her matte glazes are dipped and poured before being oxidation-fired to a durable stoneware temperature.  In addition to her popular dinnerware, Pinch stocks Judy’s bottle vases, planters, cookware, teapots, mugs, tumblers and ramekins in a variety of colors. The colors of her work range from whites to purples, greens, and blues.

    Judy says of her work, "All of my designs have evolved from simple respect for form, and the unending ability of clay to respond to my abilities to create forms I find pleasing." Her pieces make great gifts for weddings, anniversaries, and birthdays. There's no doubt that Judy's hand-crafted pieces add touches of elegance and class to one's home.
