JaMpdx ceramics is excited to be back at For Yarn's Sake, with a colorful array of fun and functional porcelain wares. Owners / artists Meghan and Jen plan to bring items specially fashioned for For Yarn’s Sake, as well as plenty of work from their other gorgeous collections. And they're looking forward to seeing everyone in person!
These talented two ceramicists have once again created several pieces that embody our shop's inspiration and the Crawl's Flora and Fauna theme. You'll be delighted by mugs large and small, stitch marker dishes, and yarn bowls, all decorated with colorful Chanterelle mushrooms and bright pink Thimbleberries. Usable, beautiful pieces of art to remind you of your 2024 Crawl experience for years to come. On sale exclusively during the 4-day event.
JaMpdx is the collaboration of Jenn Gauer and Meghan Radick, two friends who've been making functional and decorated ceramics together since 2004. Jenn uses a fine porcelain and throws the pieces on a potter’s wheel, and Meghan decorates them using cake decorating techniques (imagine an actual pastry bag and all the different metal tips, but instead of buttery frosting they use clay). Each bowl, cup or vase feels great and looks elegant—this is art that you're meant to use and enjoy!
Jenn uses fine porcelain and a potters wheel to make each piece of JaMpdx ceramics. She's been working on the wheel since 1996. Jenn designs ceramics with an emphasis on clean curves, making a clay canvas that’s ready for Meghan’s decoration.
Meghan was a professional cake decorator for 15 years before she translated her skills from frosting to clay. She uses cake decorating tools and techniques, as well as various stains and underglazes, to decorate each piece of JaMpdx ceramics.
The two opened Glaze, their retail store in Portland’s Montavilla neighborhood, in Sept 2023! Glaze sells JaMpdx handmade ceramics as well as work by other local makers and artists.
