We’re excited to have the opportunity to sponsor a workshop in conjunction with Northern Kentucky University welcoming Jen Allen on March 4th from 9am-4pm & March 5th from 9am-12pm at the NKU Ceramics & Sculpture building.

In March 2008, the National Council for the Education of Ceramic Arts (NCECA) recognized Jennifer as an “Emerging Artist”.  Among other awards, she was the recipient of the 2006-2007 Taunt Fellowship at the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, MT.  In addition to keeping a home studio, Jennifer currently teaches ceramic classes at West Virginia University.  She lives in Morgantown, WV with her husband Shoji Satake, their two kids, Annelise and Finn and their two dogs, Billie and Ella.
