About Jim Jennings
I began throwing pottery in 1967 when in high school. There was a treadle there that no one knew how to use and I was just determined to figure it out. One year later I bought my own wheel with money I had saved up mowing lawns and odd jobs. That wheel was a LOCKERBIE model and is the wheel I use to this day.
I never had much time to afford throwing pottery for many years after high school but in 1994 I built my studio building on the farm determined to make pottery at my pleasure. Back then I worked to create ART but soon learned if I wanted this hobby to at least pay for its self I needed to make functional pieces. At this point my thinking changed, craft is just art with an identity crisis. This is when everything grew and it seems as though the limits to my sales are those I put on myself, I want to enjoy my craft and not destroy that with production filling orders.
