Intro to Clay February

Jillian McEvoy, a ceramic artist who grew up in New Jersey and New York, holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in ceramics from SUNY Cortland, earned in 2019. Following her undergraduate studies, she served as an Instructional Support Technician and then an Adjunct Lecturer for the ceramics program at SUNY Cortland.

Currently pursuing her Master of Fine Arts degree in ceramics at UMass Dartmouth since 2022, Jillian's artistic focus lies primarily on vessel-based creations and ceramic installation pieces. Employing the potter's wheel as her primary tool, she generates and manipulates forms, often drawing inspiration from various natural elements and textures, particularly insects and microorganisms. Even in her non-functional works, she strives to maintain a connection to traditional vessel forms and traditional ceramic processes.
