Jacqueline Sheridan is a potter, and our featured artist of the day! Jacqueline’s website, www.jacquelinesheridanpottery.com, features pots for people, flowers and pets. Jacqueline’s functional art pieces include coffee mugs, bowls, plates and food dishes for pets. She even has a range of special “yarn bowls”, with stylized cracks for yarn to be fed through.
The artist crafts her pottery mainly in stoneware or porcelain clay, glazing it with beautiful colours and designs and occasionally adding textures or metallic touches to create truly unique pieces. Her bowls would be equally lovely as kitchen implements or as display-only art pieces. I love the pieces where Jacqueline places a bright, simple design such as flowers or a geometric pattern against a deep, shiny black glaze. The effect is wonderfully striking.
Aside from creating her ceramic artworks, Jacqueline also teaches pottery to beginners, passing on the art form to a new generation of potters.
