In my work, I explore traditional ceramics and new glass forming techniques, resulting in a contemporary design of combined materials.
Jaclyn M. Harris began pursuing ceramics along with a glass art education at the Pittsburgh Glass Center in 2008. In 2011, Jaclyn moved to Baltimore, Maryland and began working for Venetian glass artist, Anthony Corradetti, as an assistant for 2 years. By 2015 she received a Bachelors of Fine Art in ceramics at the Maryland Institute College of Art, where she studied ceramic processes of casting and atmospheric firings. After returning to Pittsburgh, she became a studio technician apprentice at the nonprofit organization, the Pittsburgh Glass Center where her practice continues. After completing her technical training, she joined a second non-profit at the Union Project where she currently supports ceramic artists as Ceramic Studio Coordinator. Along with working between two non-profits, Jaclyn currently blends her craft background of glass and ceramic techniques to develop kiln worked forms.
