Jennifer Alford is an award-winning Irish artist living and working in Scotland.

Jennifer grew up in Dublin and studied violin and music at the Royal Irish Academy of Music and University College Dublin. Recognising the value of a strong formal background as a bedrock for improvisation, she trained in the tradition of production pottery at the prestigious Ceramics Skills and Design Course in Thomastown, Ireland.

At the potter’s wheel, she creates contemporary ceramics in porcelain and stoneware. Leveraging abstract creative processes learned through studying and performing music, Jennifer endeavours to allow for moments of chance and the unexpected into her ceramic practice.

She lives and works from a former grain mill in the heart of the Angus countryside and is a visiting tutor at Edinburgh Ceramics workshop.
