Jennifer Allen, 2006 Taunt Fellow
resident 2006-2008

Jennifer ALLEN received her MFA from Indiana University, and her BFA from the University of Alaska, Anchorage. During her summer residency at the Bray in 2003, Allen was granted the Eric Myhre Scholarship. She was also the reipient of the 2006-2007 Archie Bray Taunt Fellowship, and she is currently completing her second full year as a resident at the Bray.

Allen's work commemorates various emotional and psychological influences, including family, loss, beauty, and mystery. From the significance of home, the transience of relationships and the awe of nature, Allen's fondest memories inform her creative process. Allen says, "I look to my pottery as individual utilitarian forms that mirror my perceptions of beauty, mystery, nourishment,
and celebration."
