Biography
Jennifer Alford is an award winning Irish artist whose work features in the permanent collection of the National Museum of Ireland. She makes wheel-thrown and hand-sculpted ceramics in porcelain and stoneware.

Jennifer grew up in Dublin and studied violin and music at the Royal Irish Academy of Music and University College Dublin. She found expression through musical composition and performance before discovering clay.

After several years playing in bands, teaching and working in technology, in 2018 she was accepted onto the prestigious Ceramics Skills and Design Course in Thomastown, Ireland. Under the expert tuition of master potters, she learned production throwing as well as glaze development and kiln technology.

In 2020, she received a Future Makers Award from the Design & Craft Council Ireland.

In 2021 “The Rushlight Character” - a porcelain form displaying her abstract imagery - was acquired by the National Museum of Ireland for their permanent collection.
