Jen E Ceramic Mushroom
Jen E, born Jennifer Kuroki, is an artist based in Los Angeles. She has been making art for over 20 years in L.A. and Japan. Her time abroad sparked an ongoing conversation between old and new, tradition and relevance, elevated and mundane, practical and spiritual. Three of those years she spent living and studying ceramics in Yokohama and Tokyo, training to throw on a banding wheel and to man an anagama kiln (wood-burning). This time in Japan allowed her to develop a whimsical style, most informed by her everyday visual experience.
