Whimsical teapot by Jerilynn Babroff

 

ABI:  What inspires your fun and whimsical style?

JB:  I like bringing out the fun or high moments in life. I have been influenced by many  artists, everyone  from Picasso, Matisse,  Keith Haring and the funk clay artists like Arneson, Voulkas, Shaw and Mary Frank.

 

Hearts and Stripes by Jerilynn Babroff

 

I like to make the images simple and colorful to bring out  feelings and emotions. Clay is a great medium to express my feelings.

ABI:  How do you sell your work? 

JB:  The last few years I have been selling my work online, also at a few local craft shows and a studio sale once a year in the summer. I do wholesale to some galleries and do a bit of consignment. I like doing a show occasionally and meet people and getting the feedback. I enjoy working with local galleries.

 ABI:  What have you learned from the feedback you get from customers?

JB:  Many times they inspire me with their ideas. I always use black as a trademark color, but right now I am working with different colors on a commission. This is something new for me.

Handbag teapot by Jerilynn Babroff

 

They are pretty outrageous looking, and a statement piece, and have been some of my bestsellers over the years. They average about 22” high. Sometimes I will use glass on the top of them.
