We sat down with whimsical potter Jessica Skinner of LouLouBelle Pottery to learn more about her colorful, sophisticated ceramics.
Tell us about what you create.
I make ceramics for the home using a combination of wheel thrown and hand building techniques. The majority of my work focuses on functionality and I love to bring bright colors together with sophisticated style.
Give us a taste of your “artist’s story.” How did you become the potter you are today?
I fell in love with pottery in a summer ceramics class in 2015. Since then I have had an endearing obsession for it. The feel of the clay brings me closer to nature, which is the inspiration of my work. The abundance of colors, shapes and textures fuel me. The best part of being an artist is that there is always something new to try with my techniques and styles are constantly evolving.
How long have you been a part of Whimsical Women?
This is my first year participating in the Whimsical Women show. I am very excited to join this tribe of creative women as this group is legendary!
Where can folks find your colorful ceramics?
Most of my work is posted on Instagram and Facebook @louloubellepottery, along with a small offering on my website www.louloubellepottery.com.
