As a potter
Jessie’s ventures in clay began at an early age when her dad built a pottery studio and wood kiln at their home in Ellijay, Georgia. Over the years, Jessie pursued her passion for pottery through a number of ceramics courses, a residency program with John Jessiman and an internship with her father, Lee Taylor, at her childhood farm in Virginia. She built and fired her first wood kiln in Boone, North Carolina where she lived for years. Jessie now resides in the Shenandoah Valley nestled between the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains.
Jessie’s work is a reminder of her appreciation for the natural world, of the creative and artistic tradition in which she was raised, and of her own unique path for expression.
