A Columbus ceramicist makes functional pottery with an added hint of sculpture to complete her well-balanced work. Jenny Floch’s wheel thrown pieces range from making teapots, bowls and vases to clay vessels embellishing her pieces with fluting and a calculated magnesium glaze matt finish formulated by the artist. After years of throwing clay, the veteran artist rarely works from preliminary sketches because her technical and design skills are intrinsically developed.
As a craftsperson, the ultimate goal of Jenny is to make nicely crafted artwork that is pleasing to human touch and sight. Ms. Floch views her art as outmoded but her skillfully thrown pottery blends in well with other artists who display their artwork alongside her at Evangelia Galleria in the Clintonville section of Columbus.
In spite of Jenny’s old-hat idea about her dated style, she has won prestigious awards over her 50 year art career. Her pottery has been purchased by highly regarded museums throughout the United States and the seasoned potter continues to display her work in national and international (invitational) exhibitions and one person shows. Adding to her achievements, Jenny has been featured in various trade magazines and volunteers for numerous non-profit organizations.
Although the artist was born in Paris, France, she attended the Rudolf Steiner Schoolin New York City and continued her formal education at High Mowing Schoolin Wilton, New Hampshire and eventually earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from the highly respected Alfred University, New York State College of Ceramics. ________________________________________________
