Jenni Oh Crafts

Contemprary studio ceramics

I was born in the Philippines, grew up in Australia, lived in London & now currently residing in Rome, Italy. My background began in the media, graduating in 2003 with a Bachelor of Media from Macquarie University, Sydney. I worked in television for almost 10 years in Australia and the United Kingdom before deciding to pursue my interest in crafts and become a maker. I have been making ceramics and books in Rome since 2012.

 

Taking inspiration from my varied background, interests & travels, my work is greatly informed by both Eastern & Western aesthetics and how the ideals born of the Arts and Crafts movement can still persist today.

Jenni Oh Crafts was born out of a desire to provide an alternative to mass-produced functional ceramic wares. With a keen interest in sustaining a handicraft style within a modern context, the aim is to bring focus back to the enriching nature of handmade items.

 

Foremost, the priciple behind my work is contemporary simplicity grounded in a belief that even our everyday objects should enhance the spaces they inhabit.

 

My aethetic falls somewhere between European and Asian with wide-ranging influences fom Japanese, Korean and Chinese ancient ceramics to Scandinavian and mid-century design, Bauhaus and even kawaii culture. The ceramics, mostly utilitarian in nature are also decorative and seek to sing in the spaces they occupy.
