Scope out Sherburne’s wares at www.jennylouclayart.com and at Mica Gallery in Bakersville.
Sherburne’s “mug tree,” with its curving stalk, creatively stores a collection of cups.
Sherburne creates from her home studio in Bakersville, where she makes, glazes, and electric kiln fires her wares.
Sherburne embellishes her wheel-thrown pots using hand-building techniques and vivid glazes.
These playful lotus teapots have leaf forms and lobes that highlight the plasticity of the clay. After creating shapes on the wheel (right), Sherburne experiments with extreme proportions and pops of bright color.
