Jenni Oh Crafts was borne out of a desire to provide an alternative to mass-produced functional ceramic wares. With a keen interest in sustaining a handicraft style within a modern context, the aim is to bring focus back to the enriching nature of handmade items.
Foremost, the principle behind my work is contemporary simplicity grounded in a belief that even our everyday objects should enhance the spaces they inhabit.
My aesthetic falls somewhere between European and Eastern with wide-ranging influences from Japanese, Korean and Chinese ancient ceramics to Scandinavian and mid-century design, Bauhaus and even kawaii culture. The ceramics, mostly utilitarian in nature are also decorative and seek to sing in the spaces they occupy.
All pieces are lovingly handmade in a small artisan studio in Rome, Italy.
I was born in the Philippines, grew up in Australia, lived in London and now currently residing in Rome, Italy. My background began in Media, working in television for over a decade before discovering and deciding to pursue my interest in ceramics and become a maker. My pottery journey began in 2012 and continues to this day.
