Jenanne Longman is a Toronto-based ceramicist whose work reflects the value of the handmade object and how our daily rituals are impacted by the environment that we live in. She takes inspiration from the shifting urban landscape; architecture old and new, people bustling within it and the patterns and textures of the city’s infrastructure. Experimentation with surface and design construction are important considerations in her ceramics.
Jenanne is an award winning ceramic studio artist, focused on her ceramics practice for over 10 years. She’s been an involved staff member at FUSION: the Ontario Clay and Glass Association, and has shown and is represented in several Galleries across Canada including Toronto’s Gardiner Museum. She’s taught classes in many schools including her own studio, the Gardiner Museum and at the Harbourfront Centre and has extensive knowledge of clay, surface treatments, glazing techniques and creation as well as hand-building and throwing.
