Jessie Marianacci Valone

Jessie is a potter and small business owner in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. She states: 

I use simple glazes to accentuate generous, sturdy forms and quiet surfaces, emphasizing form without distraction. My surfaces are painterly and influenced by my graphic design background. ... Function plays an important role when I design and create forms, which I design to be pleasant to look at and to function well. I hope that even the smallest of details, such as the way the handle fits in your hand or the angle of the lip, are pleasant. I enjoy working with my hands and have an appreciation for the handmade. Bringing something new and thoughtful into the world generates sense of meaning and fulfillment.
