“Birds and Bees, Flowers and Trees”, ceramic jewelry inspired by the natural world.

Our longtime member, Jennifer Paxton, is the featured artist at C’ville Arts in August.  She will be at the gallery to meet you and share her work during the First Friday event on August 4th, from 6 to 8 p.m.

All her life, Jennifer has loved making things with her hands.  After teaching art for several years, she began her ceramic jewelry business in 1985.  Over the past 30 years, Jennifer has displayed and sold her jewelry at art fairs and galleries all up and down the east coast.  She wakes up every morning, still excited to go to her backyard studio in beautiful Buckingham County, Virginia.

Jennifer’s show this month focuses on the inspiration she gets from the flora and fauna that surround her every day.  Her pieces are made of low-fire earthenware clay, using man-made and natural textures, and then finished with a wide spectrum of colorful glazes.  The fun she has creating her jewelry is evident in the work, and she intends that those who buy it receive as much enjoyment as she gains from making it.
