Jennifer Reid is a ceramic sculptor and educator. She received an MFA from the State University of New York at New Paltz in 2018 and a BFA from The University of North Carolina at Asheville. Jennifer recently relocated to her home state of Connecticut, where she is currently a K-8 Art teacher at Fraser Woods Montessori School in Newtown and an instructor to both children and adults at Silvermine Arts Center. Her work is rooted in the sculptural exploration of the vessel form. Using terracotta and porcelain paper-clay as her primary medium, Jennifer's work addresses the tension between space and mass, material relationships, structure, decoration and conceptually speaks to desire, beauty, and intimacy. Working with many parts to create a whole, her sculptures are at once floral and figurative. Exhibitions include solo shows and installations at the Williamsburg Art & Historical Center, ASU Art Museum Ceramics Research Center, The Clay Center of New Orleans, Silvermine Galleries, and the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art. Throughout her academic career, Jennifer received various awards and honors including the Graduate Student Research & Creative Project Award, SUNY New Paltz ANDRAH Merit Scholarship, Outstanding Graduate Bookplate Award and the UNC Asheville Undergraduate Research Award. Jennifer’s work has been published in The Brooklyn Rail, UNC Asheville Journal of Undergraduate Research, Headwaters Creative Arts Magazine, and The Sojourner Truth Library MFA Thesis Collection. She is currently a member of the Silvermine Guild of Artists.
