Jinny Whitehead

Jinny Whitehead is a self-taught studio potter living and working in Vancouver. Strongly influenced by nature’s awesome bounty — the mountains, forests and the ocean —the focus of her art is to transport nature into the home.

Firing with wood particularly suits the natural and organic forms Jinny creates by combining throwing and hand-building techniques. As the flame passes through the kiln it embraces each pot in its path, depositing ash and giving life to its surface and character to its form.
