About the Artist
Ceramics, Sculpture, Print Making, Pen & Ink, Drawing
Jenny Dowd is an artist interested in objects that are collected, the motivation behind collecting and the interaction of these objects. Primarily working in clay, she creates objects for table, wall and floor surfaces as well as installations designed to interact with their space and each other. Sculpture, drawing and utilitarian pottery are part of Jenny’s quirky conversations where her relentless questions stem from science, daily oddities and observations.
Jenny grew up in Kansas where she found inspiration from epic road trips, constant reading, and creative, inventive parents. After attending Kansas State University where she studied ceramics, she completed an MFA in Ceramics with a minor in Fibers at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Jenny has taught and shown her art across the country. Currently she teaches pottery, drawing, and printmaking classes at the Art Association of Jackson Hole.
Jenny and her husband, Sam, live in Alpine, Wyoming where they co-own the small art and pottery business, Dowd House Studios. Most days Jenny can be found working in her home studio or in the clay studio at the Art Association.
