Jeannie Ichimura

Ceramics

Jeannie Ichimura is a self-proclaimed “clay wrangler”. She took a ceramics class while living in Osaka, Japan in 1995 and never looked back. After years of making functional pottery, Jeannie shifted her focus to ceramic sculpture in 2015. Ideals about femininity, set standards of normalcy, and social awkwardness inform her current work. She is inspired by her friends and students in the dynamic Bay Area clay community. Jeannie received her MFA from San Francisco State University, and her work has been exhibited in CA, NY, MI, and OH. She currently divides her time between teaching ceramics at SFSU and SF Recreation and Parks and working in her studio. http://www.claywrangler.com
