Jonni Webb to Demonstrate Hand-Made Pottery

Local potter, Jonni Webb will demonstrate how to make pottery on Thurs, September 20 at 3 pm.

Originally from Itta Bena, Webb is the daughter of Dr. Eugene F. Webb and local artist, Mozelle Parker Webb, who currently resides at The Waterford. Jonni graduated from Pillow Academy in Greenwood ('75) and Mississippi State University with a BS Degree in Business/Marketing ('79).

Her newspaper advertising career after college took her through Arkansas and Texas before returning to Jackson, Mississippi, in 1984 as the Advertising Director at the Northside Sun newspaper, the state's largest weekly.

After experimenting with other mediums, including oil painting, Webb started taking pottery classes ('93) from well-known local potter, Robert Pickenpaugh, and fell in love with it the very first night of class! While sitting there playing with the clay for the very first time since "Playdoh,' She decided that "this is what I want to do the rest of my life!" Since then, she has studied under Stephen Jepson and Tom Shafer of the World Pottery Institute, Florida, and Thomas Morrison of Jackson, in addition to other workshops and continuing education with her dear friend and mentor, Robert Pickenpaugh.

In 1998, she left the newspaper to start and publish a weekly newsletter, Coffee News, which allowed her more freedom and time for making and selling pottery. A few years later, she began publishing, Front Desk, a visitor information map that she distributes through local hotels and visitor centers. After selling Coffee News in 2008, she was finally able to become JRWebb Pottery full-time (along with a few other artistic indulgences and the Front Desk maps)... and, she has never looked back... From her studio in Madison County, she makes and sells pottery to more than 40 stores, does large corporate orders and many one of a kind pieces for individuals.

Most all of her work is now hand-built or slab work. She takes a hunk of clay and creates one of a kind, functional pieces. She uses her love of nature to create "earthy" and "organic" style pieces to warm any home. Many of her ideas and inspirations come from time she spent at her family's lake house in Carroll County. Her hopes are that her art work will inspire others to see and appreciate the beauty of her beloved South.

She works with slabs of clay and hunks of clay to create, with her hands, original pieces with an earthy, organic and functional appeal. No two pieces will ever be exactly the same.

Her work has been purchased at shops, galleries and shows and shipped as gifts all over the world.

Webb has been:
• Selected in Top 50 Businesswomen in Mississippi - 2003
• Featured in numerous magazine/newspaper articles and MS ETV
• Charter exhibitor in MS Development Authority’s Mississippi Market
• Work handled in 40+ retail stores/galleries throughout the country
• Featured Artist at Mississippi Picnic in Central Park 2014 (and will be in 2015, too!)
• Featured Artist at Madison County Creative Economy Celebration 2014
