Jemma is a hand building ceramicist who graduated in 2012 with a First class honours degree in Fine & Applied Arts from the University of Ulster, Belfast. Her studio is based in Newtownabbey, Co. Antrim.
Creating ceramics influenced by her natural surroundings and key events in life, Jemma applies traditional hand building techniques to craft unique, sculptural forms.
Working predominately in porcelain, her passion for making is driven by a need for learning. She uses her craft as her own personal therapy as well as an outlet for her thoughts and emotions.
Through representing the process of vascular dementia through her pieces, Jemma’s work aims to induce reaction with traditional ceramic applications upon challenging and unconventional forms.
